View Full Version : The PokéAmulets [Revised & Redone]

November 8th, 2008, 8:19 AM
Every Thing is Taken! Due to start:


Long ago, there were amulets, otherwise known as PokèAmulets, spread all over Hoenn, Johto, Kanto, and Sinnoh. There were twenty-one people from all over the Pokèmon World chosen to protect a certain PokèAmulet. These people were known as the ‘chosen ones’.The chosen ones then were all killed, in a horrible massacre. But, luckily they all had decendants. Soon, every chosen one, or guardian, of an amulet was plucked off, no matter if they were children, elderly, or people just like you or me. No one ever discovered who the people were that were constantly trying to get to the Amulets at whatever cost. It took all of the chosen ones from all diferent generations twenty-one years to collect all of the PokèAmulets. Once the last one was placed, the Fighting PokèAmulet, all of the chosen ones who weren't already diseased, mysteriously died. Except for one. Now, there is only one known decendant of the original chosen ones, Andrew Pali. But, despite his best efforts of guarding his Amulet, the Amulet of Fighting Type, was taken. But, since he wan't killed by the 'mysterios group' (as it has been known to be called), he is an eyewitness of who these people are: Team Galactic. Fifty years later the Unerwater Sanctum collapsed, and the PokèAmulets spread all over the world again. Now sixteen people have been chosen to retrieve the PokèAmulets. The last Amulet, the Amulet of the Fighting Type, will be found by the only known true decendant of a chosen one; the decendant of the one who survived. Now, Andrew must find who the new chosen ones are, and he must help to find every PokéAmulet. They must now set out on a journey to find and place the Amulets in their special place, where they will be guarded forever: The Underwater Sanctum, located under Sootopolis City. When the PokèAmulets are all together they will emit a lot of power, so much power to keep Sootopolis City lit brighter than usual, and keeping the Pokèmon World in tact. If some of the PokèAmulets get in the hands of Team Rocket, Aqua, or Magma, or worse Team Galactic, they will recive a lot of power, and possibly send the Pokèmon World into chaos.

Each PokéAmulet's mineral represents one of the seventeen Pokemon types: Bug, Dark, Dragon, Electric, Fighting, Flying, Fire, Ghost, Grass, Ground, Ice, Normal, Poison, Psychic, Rock, Steel, and finaly Water. Each of the chosen ones had special powers, depending on their Amulet. Each Amulet would also emit signals to their chosen ones, and to the Pokemon type of the Amulet.


Congratulations! You have been chosen. You must meet me, Professor Truan at 9:00 on November 18th on Four Island (date due to change). Once you come and see me I will explain why you have been chosen, and what you must do. This is very important. I will see you soon.

As a Friend, Kaleb is very happy and talkative. He will smile and the presence of a companion will make him look at everyday things differently. he fights fiercly, may that be with or without Pokemon, and is also very caring for others and will go out of his way to help them. If somehting very bad happens that makes him sad he will stay misserbale for a long time and will not be bubbly again for a while.

He headed out for the Kanto Region and left all of his pokemon except Cyndaquil and the egg with his father in Johto. He received a Squirtle after winning a battle against his older brother, Brock, and got his first badge. He beat a few more siblings and entered the Indigo League with his team: Quilava, Pidgeot, Squirtle, Jolteon, Grimer, and an egg. He came in third place in this league and fifth place in the Johto Region one.

November 8th, 2008, 2:49 PM
I'll see what I can do~

Name: Gale Sapphire Hana
Age: 14
Gender: Female
Type of Pokèmon & Mineral: Ground/Ruby
Appearance: Gale is your general, 5'6" girl in terms of size. She is average when it comes to waist and chest, and is slightly tall for her age. She wears a white t-shirt, green camo pants, and black slip-on shoes (with short white socks) on most occasions, and will sometimes wear a white kitty-eared cap, and even more rarely a white kitty tail to go with it. Her hair is a beautiful golden blonde, which is simply long (about chest length) and straight, and she has gorgeous sapphire-blue eyes
Personality: Gale is quiet and shy, and usually doesn't socialize unless she has to. She is a tactician, up to a point, and likes to plot out her strategies, as well as figure out those of her opponents. She keeps something similar to a laptop and PDA, which she uses to look up information about her opponents, their Pokemon, strategies, etc., and any information of Pokemon themselves.

Glaceon (Lace) - pronounced "Layce"
Level: 60 (so it makes more sense, in a way)
Gender: Girl
Moves: Trump Card, Water Pulse (unless TMs aren't allowed, then it's Bite), Blizzard, Ice Fang
Nature: Mild (+Sp. Atk, -Def.)

Grotle (Ruby) - pronounced "Roo-bee"
Level: 25
Gender: Male
Moves: Bite, Body Slam (Egg Move), Razor Leaf, Hidden Power - Water (TM taught, else it's Curse)
Nature: Lonely (+Atk, -Def.)

Swampert (Zuri) - pronounced "Zur-ree"
Level: 52
Gender: Female
Moves: Earthquake, Ice Ball (Egg Move), Hydro Pump, Muddy Water
Nature: Naughty (+Atk., -Sp. Def.)

Larvitar (Rena) - pronounced "Rei-nuh"
Level: 29
Gender: Female
Moves: Rock Slide, Dark Pulse, Dragon Dance (Egg Move), Scary Face
Nature: Modest (+Sp. Atk., -Atk.)

History: Gale is an orphan, but knows of only one remaining sibling - her brother, Colin. Colin, who is a few years older than Gale, taught her everything she needed to know about Pokemon, battling, and all that. He gave her her first Pokemon, the Eevee, when she was around eight years old. After training the Eevee to a point, Colin took the Eevee to the Sinnoh region, where she became a marvelous Glaceon. Afterwards, he brought back a Turtwig from Sinnoh and a Mudkip from Hoenn to give to Gale. Later on, he returned from Mt. Silver and gave her a Larvitar. He always joked how she ended up with Pokemon that didn't fit her name (a running gag was that he'd call her "Terra"), but she always told him to shut up. Nonetheless, the two get along to a certain point, and recently, Colin's been off on his own, training his own Pokemon. He also promised Gale a female Vulpix named Kaen and a male Growlithe named Blaze, but Gale has yet to receive the two.


Colin - 18 - Somewhat Well-known Trainer in many parts of Johto, Hoenn, and Sinnoh
Other Info. on Colin: Colin actually trained Zuri and Lace while he was adventuring in Hoenn, which explains why they are both at higher levels. He also consulted with Gale on a few things, such as what nicknames the Pokemon would have before actually nicknaming them. He also asked her if she wanted her Pokemon to learn specific moves before evolving them. She said she wanted Zuri to learn Hydro Pump and Lace to learn Trump Card, so Colin made sure they didn't evolve until they learned those moves naturally. As for some of their other moves, he went to some sort of move tutor and had them relearn moves they could've learned earlier, such as Muddy Water (which Zuri could've never learned again).


Morty - I would say 18-20? - Gym Leader - Gale met with him when Colin was off on one of his mini journeys
Jasmine - Also 18-20? - Gym Leader - Gale bumped into her in Olivine while she was shopping over there
Clair - 18-20, again - Gym Leader - Gale met her while checking out the Dragon's Den in hope to find a Larvitar, which she discovered wasn't there whatsoever
Other: Gale is a great singer and will often sing to calm those around her down; her eyes will either turn a sandy-yellow or terra-brown color when using her powers, and her powers are similar to that of a Tyranitar (not exactly a Ground type, but its previous evos. are, so... else it's similar to that of a Swampert)

Ok is it better now? I do want a trainer card and I hope it is ok now...I made it to where his egg hatches into a Pikachu instead of a Pichu because I really want a Pikachu instead of a Pichu...

I'd like to reserve Electric/Gold. :33 Will have a sign-up sheet by 10 pm PST!

November 8th, 2008, 5:18 PM
Name: Jaiden Lucas Pierce
Age: 15
Gender: Male
Type of Pokèmon & Mineral: Ice/Pearl

Appearence: Jaiden is just like any other boy his age, he stands at a proud 6'1 and sports a mess of unkempt brown hair atop his head. He has a white beanie which is used to keep his messy hair under control and a pair of large black sunnies, that were actually meant to be worn by a girl. His usual attire consists of a thick black t-shirt, worn under an even thicker white hoody with black imprints on it. He wears baggy grey jeans that hang over his tall colourful converse sneakers.

Personality: Jaiden doesn't want to be like all the other generic teens his age, he prefers to be a bit out there and is often trying to impress people with his silly antics. Although he likes being a bit of a jokster, Jaiden is actually one of the smartest people you'll ever meet... but he doesn't prance about saying, "I'm smarter then all of you!" Instead, he tries to hide his smart and kind side... acting like a monkey and performing for peoples attention.


Name: Aipom
Level: 35
Gender: Male
Moves: Swift, Agility, Thunderbolt, Brick Break
Nature: Quirky
History: Aipom was given to Jaiden by his older brother Kasey, who said that Aipom was just as crazy as him and twice as hyper.

Name: Snorunt
Level: 27
Gender: Male
Moves: Headbutt, Protect, Ice Beam, Shadow Ball

Gender: Female
Moves: Reflect, Magical Leaf, AncientPower, Energy Ball

History: Bayleef hatched from an egg as a Chikorita a couple of months ago, since then it has grown to be a strong part of Jaiden's team.

Name: Skorupi
Level: 21
Gender: Male
Moves: Bite, Pin Missile, Aerial Ace, Sludge Bomb
Nature: Naive
History: Skorupi is the newest member of Jaiden's team and has a lot to learn, he was obtained when Jaiden travelled to Sinnoh... right before he received the letter.

History: Jaiden grew up in Petalburg City with his older brother, Kasey and their mother. He always felt left out and hated that Kasey got all the attention. All he ever wanted to do was go on a Pokemon journey... and when his brother showed his human side, by giving him Aipom, he knew it was time.

Other: Jaiden's powers activate when he is in a calm state, if he gets too filled with emotion his powers are useless. When they do activate though, he becomes able to use powers similiar to that of an Ice-type Pokemon.

Where You’re Character is at Start: Eterna City, Sinnoh

November 8th, 2008, 5:46 PM
Name: Lauren Ashley Williams
Age: 22 years
Gender: Female
Type of Pokémon & Mineral: Psychic, Roze Zircon

Appearence: Lauren's a semi-average person, bearing fair skin and a full height of 5'9" (yes, overall only the height has changed). She bears an hour-glass shape, and her figure is described by some as somewhat athetlic— "enough to tell she works out to some extent and has grown during her adventures". She's in good physical health and appearance overall, but there's nothing in the extreme for her. At most, she looks somewhat "aged" around the face, as if she's been through a stressful period in her life. Lauren possesses milk chocolate brown hair that goes a little past her shoulders, and her eyes are a slightly tarnished (i.e., dull) shade of greyish-green-to-blue-green; in a way, her eyes are almost "worn down" looking, akin to her face.

Attire wise, she usually wears a black or dark purple sweater. Her lower half is usually graced in a pair of blue jeans with some kind of a design or Pokémon stitched in; black boots and socks cover her feet. There are three belts on her person; one goes around her waist and holds her rapier's hilt (along with Regnorik's sparring/training caps for his arm blades). The other belts actually attach around her upper arms and hold her team's Poké Balls when they are not in use; three to each belt, going around the outer parts of her arms.

The oddest piece of her attire, however, happens to be a long, black coat of leather with a wide-brimed hat to match, which covers a head of brown, long hair; sticking forth from the hat is usually a Flying Type's feather. Gloves of a violet and black coloration cover her hands, especially designed so that the fingers can be unclipped and removed if needed. Last but not least are a pair of Go-Go goggles, which are usually hanging from around her neck.

She also has two long scars running along the outsides of her arms; they are two quarter-inch wide lines that start at the wrist and run all the way to the elbow. These are impossible to see when she's fully dressed, thanks to her sweater and gloves; on that note, they aren't the only scars on her body either. Along with the two on her arms, she has several lines of various widths cut across her right foot, and several small puncture wound scars along her rib cages (towards her back).

Personality: The young woman is very mature for someone who used to once be all gung-ho about Pokémon journies. Having mellowed out over the years of her life, she's now a calmer person than she used to be in her youth; she's very business-like and formal these days, most of the time in present company. However, tendencies such as being a sarcastic twit and living life by her own rules and disregarding that of authority tend to appear on and off.

Not to say that she's a rebel; oh, no, no, that would be too gung-ho for Lauren these days. Taking Pokémon Battles and "her work" seriously, she's a much more adult shadow of her former self. That doesn't mean that she can't crack a smile or handle a good joke; she's simply more mellowed than she once had been. Still, she's like the water— calm one moment and a raging ocean storm the next. Her "raging storm" of a temper still gets the better of her (especially around "those damned idiotic twits") at times and leads to some form of irrational thinking.

Personality Quirks: Over the years, her team's various quirks and mannerisms have rubbed off onto their trainer, blending in with her own personality to create a few interesting habits here and there. She's been known to be very formal and respectful at times, inside and outside of battle— a little something she picked up from her Gallade, right along with his British-sounding accent, although her's takes on a more Irish sound. Lauren enjoys joining in on Taunter's various pranks and jokes, and her enjoyment for masquerades has stemmed from the Gliscor on her team, who enjoys the costumes as much as Lauren now does.

Still, there are a few negative traits she's gained as well; for example, she has a great distaste for Taunter's attemps at stealing others' life forces, and the combined goofy quirks/ideas of both the Haunter and Vlad cause their trainer to smack her forehead quite a bit during the day— apparently one goofy idea is enough, but two in the same room isn't. She's been known to become on edge and slightly agitated when Sparx becomes agitated himself, and she can't help but become very nervous when Aquaria insists on using Surf to try to carry her across water— do remember that she is not hydrophobic.


Name: Taunter (Haunter)
Level: 60
Gender: Male
Moves: Dark Pulse, Hypnosis, Nightmare, Sludge Bomb
History: Lauren's starter, originally as a gastly, after it was decided that her parents didn't need the crap scared out of them year after year; has been her main partner throughout the years.

Name: Sparx (Jolteon)
Level: 50
Gender: Male
Moves: Thunder Fang, Double Kick, Thunder, Dig
History: Sparx's egg was bought in Slateport from an elderly gentlemen; he too has been on the team since the beginning.

Name: Aquaria (Vaporeon)
Level: 48
Gender: Female
Moves: Raindance, Aqua Ring, Rain Dance, Ice Beam
History: Aquaria's egg was bought a couple of years after Sparx, somewhere near Celadon according to her trainer. Although she originally was to stay an Eevee, a few stealing mishaps and a waterstone turned her into a Vaporeon.

Name: Regnorik (Gallade)
Level: 46
Gender: Male
Moves: Psycho Cut, Zen Headbutt, Teleport, Sustitute
History: Although he does not like to talk about it, Regnorik's Poké Ball was stolen by Lauren from a scientist. Still, the pair have reconciled over the years, and he's gradually grown very fond and protective of the young woman.

Name: Vladimir (Shiny Gliscor)
Level: 45
Gender: Male
Moves: X-Scissor, Quick Attack, Harden, Iron Tail
History: He, along with Regnorik, is one of the only Pokémon on Lauren's team to have not been evolved by his current trainer. He was sent from Canclave, Sinnoh, by Lauren's Uncle Raphael as a birthday gift. He has an odd love of masquerades...

Name: Rosiary (Vulpix)
Level: 2
Gender: Female
Moves: Ember, --, --, --
History: This Pokémon was acquired very recently, and thus doesn't have much of a moveset and isn't powerful at all. Still, Lauren loves the lil' fox.

·Born to Samuel and Katrina Williams in Oldale, Hoenn
·Started her journey at the age of 11 with Taunter (as a gastly)
--Acquired Sparx and Aquaria as Eevees (eggs were bought within a couple of years of each other)

·Vanished off the social map at the age of 13, somewhere in Kanto
·Returned to the social map at the age of 16
--Acquired Regnorik

·Returned to Oldale for a short while
·Left for Sinnoh, just to explore
·Returned to Oldale at the age of 20, once more fell off the social map
--Acquired Vlad and Rosiary

·Has recently reappeared in Hoenn, at Slateport

·She plays the violin; not well, but she does
·Occasionally fences with Regnorik for kicks (i.e., no battle unless FORCED into one with it by another person), because she can't be bothered to find any where in the world that has fencing classes and doesn't want to really settle down yet; if you see a rapier, don't be alarmed-- that's her sparring weapon
·Somewhat acrobatic; does handstands, some okay scaling of fences, and some small flips after a running start.
·Comes from a line of psychics; they aren't particularly powerful, but her family does show the potential for such abilities, including Lauren herself. In the past, this has appeared (apparently) as two things; first is weak telekinesis (which is still considered weak for her family) and second is the apparent ability to smack her Haunter around as if he was tangiable.

Power: Appears in the form of telekinesis; in order to use it, she has to remain calm and focused-- sudden tension or spikes in emtions can cause it to either fail completely or mometarily spike to heights that could very much put Lauren in a coma or kill from the mental strain.

Where You’re Character is at Start: Slateport, Hoenn

Note: I presume that you'd let us pick our powers? That's what it sounds like from the last accepted member, unless I missed something. If not, I'll get rid of what the power would be.

Name: Tamika (Tami) Reneé Spencer

Age: 17

Gender: Female

Type of Pokémon & Mineral: Water/Aquamarine

Appearance: Tamika has fairly tanned skin. She stands at 5 feet 3 inches, weighs 120lbs and is of medium build. She has thick shoulder length black hair and dark green eyes. She can usually be seen wearing a long sleeved blue hoodie and under it she wears a dark green short sleeved shirt with a purple heart stitched within the middle of the shirt along with hip-hugging blue jeans and black sneakers. For accessories, on her left wrist she wears a black arm band with a skull and crossbones etched into the material and a dark green cap with a purple skull etched in the middle adorns her head and 3 piercings are in her right ear.

Personality: Tamika is a headstrong individual. She won't ask for much and has a tendency to do things on her own rather than follow the rules of others, this does not however means she's disrespectful, she just does things on her own time or whenever its convenient for her or in other words she's one of the biggest procrastinators most people have ever had the chance of meeting. Tamika at times, can also be very lazy and unmotivated, hence her do it whenever she feels like it problem, Golduck is usually the one reminding her of her duties and Pachirisu takes immense pleasure in shocking the girl when the former of the two find her sleeping on a job.


1.) Name: Golduck

Level: 35

Gender: Male
Moves: Water Pulse. Ice Beam. Psychic. Focus Punch
Nature: Calm
History: Tamika has had Golduck ever since when she first captured it as a Psyduck. Golduck is the wisest of her group and often serves as mediator between Pachirisu and Houndour's arguments. In battle Golduck is calculating and often uses his wits to win a match and he's very intelligent, hit mental skills are almost on par with an Abra or Kadabra.

2.) Name: Pachirisu

Level: 30

Gender: Female
Moves: Thunderbolt. Iron Tail. Dig. Bite
Nature: Naughty
History: Her second capture and only female of the group. Pachirisu has been with Tamika just as long as Golduck has, she had gotten the electric rodent while visiting Floraroma Town, the naughty mouse had stolen her food during their first encounter but eventually became swayed by Tamika and joined up with her and Psyduck. She's the most playful, often grating on the other Pokémon's nerve's. In battle Pachirisu's speed has been unmatched by most her opponents, mostly confusing them with her speed and then going in for the final blow.

3.) Name: Houndour

Level: 20

Gender: Male
Moves: Dark Pulse. ShadowBall. Smog. Ember.

Nature: Rash
History: Houndour is the most aggressive of the group and can be seen chasing Pachirisu more often than not, he's a nice Pokémon and is very loyal to Tamika and the others. In battle, he stays true to his Rash nature, Houndour charges into battle and likes to attack first and as questions later, rather than plan out things ahead he's always ready to go in straight for the kill, sometimes ignoring Tamika's orders and doing things on his own, which often leads him to defeat.

4.) Name: Beedrill (Spear)

Level: 16
Gender: Male
Moves: Swift. Silver Wind. Aerial Ace. Giga Drain
Nature: Timid
History: Tamika has just recently caught Spear, she captured the Bee when it was just a Weedle. It was being preyed upon by a group of Taillow, the shy little guy refused to fight back and was eventually attack until it lost consciousness. Tami had captured it then and quickly rushed it to the Center and vowed to herself and Spear that she'd help him become stronger, the two trained hard and eventually Spear evolved to his final level. Although Spear is now menacing, appearance wise, he's still shy and often strays away from the other Pokemon, but whenever Tamika or the others need him, he'll be there.

Other: Tami, for as long as she can remember, has had a strong bond with Water Pokémon and has the ability to “speak” with them.

His regular clothing is a large brown coat with a chin high collar and a azure dragon at the center of the coat that covers a light orange with white stripes t-shirt with a picture of two fish circling each other resembling a yin-yang sign. On his wrist he has a light blue bracelet with white stripes that contains his a hole in the front which will soon contain his gem. On cold days he slips a light green scarf onto his neck and places two light brown gloves on his hands and continues with those items on his person.
Personality: Echo possesses incredible self control of his emotions. He constantly displays an emotionless personality, though at times, he appears to have a slight degree of anger or frustration on his face. He only shows surprise when opponents prove more powerful or skilled than he had expected, and even then he doesn't lose his composure. He does not possess any arrogance, and fully justifies any statements he makes about his power, and even compliments his opponents at times on their abilities.

November 8th, 2008, 10:52 PM
Name: Alexander Lyon

Age: 21

Gender: Male

Type: Electric/Gold


Alexander is tall bot not large, well-proportioned, not visibly muscular, and keeps his nails clean. His hair is light brown (almost blond) and is a little longer than it should be. He has a perfectly straight nose, considerate (or considering) hazel eyes, and thin lips. He is usually smiling in a frank and airy manner.

He wears jeans, buttown down shirts in sobre colours, and shoes of varying shades of brown. He also carries a pair of reading glasses in a case. He doesn't have to use them, but they make him look more astute.


The first thing about Alexander is that he's so full of joie de vivre, the vitality of youth. His expressions change easily, always sincerely. He thinks he knows what's best for the world, and if not, he's busy figuring it out. Successes have come easily to him, whether because of money, confidence, or charisma. He has a good deal of respect for authority, because authority is power and power demands respect. His chief concern is making the world work for him. He is ambitious, but not sure what his ambitions are. His university years are helping him figure that out. I'd say that, with a bit of a push, he could go into politics, or become a dictator with benevolent intentions. (See history)


Alexander was born into a relatively wealthy family, rich enough for heirlooms, carefree spending, and a house in the country (where his mother now lives, renting out the city house). Growing up in an atmosphere of luxury, he has never worried about making his way through life: he knows that there is plenty of cash supporting whatever he does, and more where that came from. That's why, instead of considering a career in computer sciences or engineering, Alexander is pursuing a bachelor's degree in history simply for the hell of it. Latin American dictatorships are his favourite. When this letter reaches him, he is in his third year at university.

In his earlier years, Alexander busied himself with bug collections, the swim team, forced piano lessons (not for long, thankfully) and trying - unsuccessfully - to shape his younger sister's character. He also got into Pokemon when he was eleven, because it was all the rage, but never focused on battling. He was - is - more of an intellectual type, attentive in class, revelling in his ability to quote the classics, and always ready to lecture to his friends.

His sister, four years younger, is named Samantha. She may pop into this thing if required.

Other: Alexander is always Alexander (points if you can guess why). Only his sister calls him Alex; in return he calls her Sam.


Alexander owns half a dozen Pokemon, but will only travel with three (if it's permitted).

Kelby the Jolteon
Lv. 49
Moves: fake tears, double team (sand-attack if no TMs), thunderbolt (thunder fang if no TMs), double kick
(Anyone else notice how Jolteon learns almost no special moves naturally? Yeesh.)
History: One of Alexander's first Pokemon, Kelby was bought as a young eevee with his own money. Kelby limps on his left front paw, a debilitating handicap for any electric Pokemon, and this gives him an odd hopping gait. He is a veteran battler and knows what to do without Alexander's commands.

Nix the Gardevoir
Lv. 38
Moves: psychic, will-o-wisp, calm mind, energy ball (magical leaf if no TMs)
History: Nix was caught as a little Ralts way back when and has grown into an indispensable part of Alexander's team, although she does not do battle much since she evolved - what a shame to see such a lovely creature injured! When Alexander lived at home, she helped with the housework and gardening. She likes to sing along with the radio (her voice sounds like burbling). No one is really certain about Nix's gender, but Alexander prefers to assume she is female.

Jackie the Houndour
Lv. 22
Moves: flamethrower (fire fang if no TMs), bite, roar, nasty plot
History: Jackie is still an adolescent Houndour, but Alexander is certain he'll evolve soon. He has the nature of a guard dog: out of his Pokeball (which is pretty often), he stands at attention at Alexander's side, panting and watching anyone who gets close. In battle he uses a lunge-and-retreat technique, but does not have the endurance or patience for long, strategical fights.

Location at start: Slateport (either at the university, or hanging out somewhere if he's between semesters)

Power: Alexander has the amazing power to rub metal things with his fingers...and turn them into magnets. Not permanent magnets. Pretty weak magnets, actually. He discovered this trick when he was twelve, and used it to shock his friends, who got used to it really fast.

November 9th, 2008, 2:56 PM
Name: Lita Kino
Age: 16
Gender: Female
Type of Pokèmon & Mineral: Grass Peridot
Personality: Lita is a kind girl who can be a bit hot headed at times, She is usually very calm and serene but when she is threatened or annoyed then she tends to lose her temper, many people do not approach her because of her intimidating demeanor but she still can make friends if she doesn't scare them away.

Stun Spore, Razor Leaf, Moonlight, Giga Drain

Lucario Lv 42

Breloom Lv 28
Stun Spore, Mach Punch, Counter, Mega Drain

History: Lita has lived with her aunt in Floaroma Town since she was 3, when her parents died in a plane crash she had no choice but to live with her aunt. While Lita lived in Floaroma Town most of the kids were afraid of her intimidating demeanor. She was friendless until she was 10 when she met a young girl named Lydia, Lydia was her only friend but sadly the next year, Lydia's parents had to move to Johto. Lita was crushed by having to see her only friend leave. She decided that she had to find a way to make more friends, the only way was to not act tough but as she was usually very insecure and trusted no one, she couldn't help but act tough. She later on recieved a letter from Prof. Rotwood, curious as she was she read the letter and it said that she was special from others and that she was chosen to come to four islands. She decided that it was time for her to set out so she headed for Four Islands.

Other: Lita carries a strange orb that controls the power of nature, she is able to heal others with this but it can also send out thunder.

November 10th, 2008, 6:07 AM
Can I please reserve Normal/Topaz? I can't seem to finish the History now ):

edit: Nevermind that, I managed to finish it anyway. I hope I get accepted? I edited the Sign-Up if don't mind, so that you [and others] won't get confused if it's my History, or my Pokémon's, or maybe it's basic info, or whatever. If you catch my drift.

Basic Information:
Name: Rizza Krowffen Playne
Age: 14
Gender: Female
Type of Pokèmon & Mineral: Normal, Topaz

Appearance: Rizza is short for her age, about 5', and is of a slim build. Her eyes born with a hazelnut color, and her hair as a dark shade of brown. She has two low, sideward pigtails on either side of her head, and thick side swept bangs to the left, with an ahoge leaning to the right. Her skin is a tanned light brown shade because of her tendency to go out and play during the day. Her clothes usually consist of light denim shorts, and a short sleeved shirt with multiple, colorful designs by her with her matching rainbow arm warmers given to her by her family, with a final touch of her high-cut shoes, coloured white with a hint of designs by her once again.

Personality: Rizza, who likes to be called Riz for short because of her bubbly attitude, is one of your usual hyperactive, highly curious and very lively girls. Maybe not that usual.. In any case, she's a happy-go-lucky girl, who is very outgoing and filled with overflowing happiness. Because of that attitude of hers, she tends to influence other people's decisions. She's a great leader too, but refuses to be one since she doesn't want to be superior to her peers. But whenever she is provoked, she can get very emotional, either hurting you with her temper or crying because of what you did to her. Basically she's unpredictable and nice, but also weird at times.

History: As a girl she learned to live like an average normal girl, with a famous family of two very successful breeders for parents, and a sister famous in the line of Pokémon Coordinating, she dreamed of living up to her family name and being one of the best. Her high spirits took her to different places when she was a child, and when they settled in Littleroot with her family at the age of 7, she started to think what she would do on her tenth year: the year of decision. Ten years marks what you would become in their family and with her knowledge about breeding and coordinating, she did not know where to choose. Until she met two aspiring trainers in her town, a boy and a girl who were determined on being both a great coordinator and trainer respectively. She was astounded by their rivalry-friendship and missed her friends around the world, but made her decide her future as both Coordinator and Trainer. Receiving the Chu from her father, she strived to train within Littleroot, when she was not within legal age and eventually went off on her journey. She wanted to thank those two trainers, but she never knew where they were now. But she strove hard, and was determined to be like them. On exactly her fourth year training around Hoenn through forests and seas and different routes with different friends and rivals, Rizza also turned fourteen. Returning to Littleroot to celebrate four years of hard work, she finds a small gathering at her place with the two trainers she originally met. They were there to give her an urgent letter from a "Professor Truan". As she read the letter, everyone was excited to know what's happening and she explained to her family and friends. And with that she ran outside and flew with Puffie to the PokéCenter to ask where is Four Island.

Father: Norman Playne
Mother: Caroline Krowffen
Older Sister: Tiffany Mei Playne
Uncle: Joel Krowffen

[Norman and Caroline are portrayed as both Gymleader and Wife respectively, as well as famous Breeders in my story. May is obviously May, and Joel is the Fall City Ranger in Pokémon Ranger]

Name: Chu
Specie: Pikachu
Level: 40
Gender: Female
Moves: Discharge, Agility, Double Team, Iron Tail
Nature: Adamant
History: Chu was Rizza's first Pokémon which was actually given by her fatherwho was an expert breeder known around the world. Ever since she saw a Pikachu from her younger days, she always asked for one whenever she can, but she doesn't really get one because she wasn't of the right age yet. When she turned seven, her father finally bred her a Pichu from one of his trusty friends and raised it to become a Pikachu. Ever since, Rizza and Chu have been the best of friends, and the closest of pals and she vowed to never evolve her to a Raichu.

Name: Puffie
Specie: Jigglypuff
Level: 30
Gender: Female
Moves: Wake-up Slap, Body Slam, Bounce, Gyro Ball
Nature: Jolly
History: After working hard with Chu, Rizza wandered around the nearby towns, training and challenging people. Since she wanted to be both trainer and coordinator. By chance would have had it, she heard a faint cry for help in the nearby woods. She and Chu rushed off to see where it came from, to find out that a family of Jigglypuff were panicking on how to get one of their kin that was stuck between two small branches which could me she falls and dies or breaks free but flies to nowhere. Luckily for Rizza, she was trained by her uncle on what to do on these kinds of situations and she got the poor Jigglypuff out. Ever since then it followed Rizza and Chu and went on with their journey to who knows where.

Other: Besides that fact that she is an ordinary girl, her power is that she is very influential to others around her (i.e., cheering up the impossible, trying to change your mind about something)

Personality: Ryan is very studious and smart about everything because he has trained under his father and Steven Stone.

Then he went to the Pokemon League and was completely destroyed in the first round. He was not good enough. At age 13 he moved to Mossdeep City in Hoenn. After learning much from his father, an up and coming Professor, he met Steven Stone who had returned home from the Pokemon League. After much coaxing, and Steven’s acquaintance with Ryan’s father, Ryan became Steven’s student where he received Aron. At age 16, he felt he was ready to make another go at becoming the Pokemon Master of Hoenn. However he has received a mysterious letter from a person named Prof. Truan….

Appearence: Blonde hair and blue eyes. about 7 ft. tall. has a long scar under his right eye. Aragorn wears typical trainer clothes, depending on where he is, and a gold cape (fire emblem lord type, not superhero type) with a sea blue trim and a hood. Under his cape he wears a blue backpack with fiery wing designs on either side and a sword design embroidered on the back (the part that you can see). he usually just straps it to Sols back, though.

Personality:Normally amiable and freindly but is easily provoked. When he is angry, however, he lacks sense and proves to be comic relief more than anything else. Aragorn has a good sense of humor and tends to trip over things, but some how that tends to help (think Collette from Tales of Symphonia). He is extremely vunerable to cold, though and usually ends up as an Icecube in cold places. Around stangers he tries to keep up a cool and mysterious personality but doesn't always succede...

Edit: oh man I just finished this... and it turns out that there's another steel application! uh-oh...

November 10th, 2008, 2:31 PM
@ Rizapop - ACCEPTED Good job!
@ Pikataro - I know... I typed it a long time ago and dind't change it...
@ BigfootTheUnbeatable and Aragorn199 - You two, since you both chose Steel, need to either both give an RP Sample, and I'll choose, or you can work it out via PM to decide who gets what.

First, I'm changing my main character, because the other one sucks:

Name: Grey Christopher Rose
Age: 13
Gender: Male
Type of Pokèmon & Mineral: Fighting, Synthetic Ruby
Appearence:Grey is fairly tall for his age, being somewhere around 5'5". He is 'shrimpy' you might say. He doesn't work out, and doesn't have much meat on his bones. He wears a formal watch, nothing fancy though. He usualy wears contacts, but if you catch him on a bad day he will be wearing wire-rimmed glasses. He has a few freckles here and there across his face. He has a skinny nose, and has the first signs of acne appearing on his forehead. He has a normal sized chin, and thin lips. He is usually wearing gloves on his hands to cover up his bony fingers. His arms are skinny and most would be able to wrap their hand around his wrists. His legs are the same as his arms: skinny and bony. He has fairly big feet for his small size. A good word to describe his figure is 'lanky'. Grey wouldn't be caught dead in shorts. He always wears jeans, and is okay with short sleeved shirts. Under neath his shirt he always wears a white undershirt. Over his shirt he usually wears a gray hoodie (ironic, aye?). He has bleach-white sneakers; they look as if they have never been worn. Though you can't see his socks, he usually wears the socks that are hidden beneath the shoe. Grey has brown hair, which just touches his collar and goes a little over his ear, and his eyes are a hazel color, changing from green and brown.
Personality:Grey is calm whenever things around him are calm. He is a follower if whatever must get done doesn't affect his grades, etc., but whenever somthing comes up and it will affect his life he will take the lead of the project and complete it with his best efforts and intentions. His mood changes as the mood of those around him changes. If it is a rainy day, he will most likley be gloomy, but on a bright day he will be happy and calm. Whenever somthing sad, devasting, happy, or joyous happens, he usually wont show much emotion. A good way to describe his personality is if the weather is good, hes good, but if the weather is gloomy, hes gloomy. Because of his small size he is usually picked on by kids his age and older. Usualy the first time they pick on him is also the last. He has a darks side when someone threatens him or tries to hurt him. People learn that despite his laid back person, he can get mad fairly easily. Outwardly to everyone Grey is very calm and shy, but those who really get to know him will see that he can be very open and talkitive, quite the opposite of his normal, laid back personality. He likes working, Pokemon, Internet, and any technology, and fears blood and guts. His main goal would to be one of the best inventors of Pokemon technology. He idles the creators of the PokeDex and PokeNav.

Appearence: http://i234.photobucket.com/albums/ee303/animefreak7574/anime/thCoolGuy.jpg
Personality: Kuma is a relaxed boy, who enjoys napping and playing games. He finds it hard to challenge himself and so he usually never works hard. However, when his Croagunk gives him the right motivation, he jumps into something full steam. Kuma can be a little cowardly, but his Croagunk gives him courage to fight. Kuma has hopes of becoming a coordinator with the right training from one of his friends. Until then he chooses to waste his time napping on the grass. He likes to go off his mission and flirt with a girl. Of course, Croagunk always interrupts when Kuma gets too close.

Gender: Female
Level: 30
Moves: Poison Jab, Brick Break, Poison Sting
Nature: Lax

Gender: male
Level: 20
Moves: Bubblebeam, Peck, Pound, Whirlpool
Nature: Impish

Gender: male
Level: 17
Moves: Tackle, Shadow Ball, Dig, Helping Hand
Nature: Rash

History: Kuma was born and raised in Twinleaf Town. He was raised by his Grandparents, who were both Pokemon lovers. They both decided to open up their ownb Pokemon Breeding Center that raised weak and wild Pokemon. Kuma watched everyday and even assisted his grandparents in helping the Pokemon. It was on his third day of work he met, three of his best friends. Lily, Jackson, and Croagunk. Croagunk was wandering around in town, but came to the center beaten up. Kuma raised the injuried Croagunk back to health with the the help of his grandparents. While Croagunk rested in her bed, Kuma met Lily trying to calm her Eevee and Jackson fighting his Piplup. Kuma walked over to them and started to explain the situation to the trainers. The trainers were both able to calm their Pokemon and then made a decision. They realized that Kuma was better well prepared for raising their Pokemon than they were. Witn that Kuma obtained his Eevee and Piplup. After taking the Pokemon, Kuma decided to go back and check on Croagunk. Lily and Jackson also went along. It was there they met Croagunk's jealous Poison Jab. Croagunk saw Kuma with Lily and delivered the first in a series of Poison Jab's of Jealousy. From that day, all four of them became friends. Kuma later tired of working and developed his lazy personality and started to sleep out on the grass.

Other: Piplup and Eevee are low level, because they were given to him by close friends of his that no longer wanted to be trainers. Eevee once belonged to Kuma's friend Lily, who decided she wanted to learn more before she became a trainer again. Piplup was given to him by his friend Jackson, who decided he wanted a different starter. He later realized that he didn't like water Pokemon and wanted a fire type. With that Kuma promised to take care of each of them until his friends decided what they were going to do with their lives.

November 10th, 2008, 9:13 PM
Name: Angela Marie Robinson- goes by Ann

Age: 14

Gender: Female

Type of Pokèmon & Mineral: Flying/Sapphire

Appearence: Ann has long, slightly wavy brown hair and dark blue eyes. At about 5'2", she looks to be about average weight with slim muscles and is nicely tanned from training outside a lot. For clothes, she wears a black, short-sleeved shirt with a fire design across the front, dark blue jeans, and black sneakers. She carries her food, pokedex, and other necessities in a dark blue and black backpack that she carries around. Specks of white swirl around in her eyes when she uses her wind powers.

Personality: Open and friendly toward people and Pokemon alike, Ann loves to make new friends and pretty much has a light-hearted and cheerful attitude. Tending to jump into situations without thinking, she has a talent for finding trouble but has an equally strong talent for finding her way right out of it. She enjoys nothing more than hanging out with her Pokemon and can often be found training with them or flying on her Pidgeot. Because of her flights with Bell, she has little fear of heights. She has strong loyalty to her friends and will always jump in and help anyone she sees in need.


Blitz the Blaziken
Level: 45
Gender: Male
Moves: Flamethrower, Slash, Agility, Focus Punch
Nature: Serious
History: Ann got Blitz as her starter in Hoenn as a Torchic. He's been with her the longest and has a very close bond with her. They know each other so well that they can usually each tell what the other is thinking.

Bell the Pidgeot
Level: 36
Gender: Female
Moves: Hyper Beam, Gust, Agility, Aerial Ace
Nature: Brave
History: As a Pidgey, Bell was the first Pokemon that Ann ever caught. She often enjoys letting Ann take a ride on her back and also tries to give little Cloud flying tips so he'll be able to fly soon, too.

Cloud the Swablu
Level: 5
Gender: Male
Moves: Peck, Growl, Astonish
Nature: Naive
History: Ann saved Cloud when he was still an egg from a hungry Ekans. Unable to find his parents, she decided to keep the egg and was surprised and overjoyed when a little Swablu hatched from it. He's still only about half the size of a typical Swablu and is still learning how to fly. He thinks that Ann is his mother, often sitting on her shoulder, and the other Pokemon are his big brothers and sisters, though he's especially close to Bell since she's also a flying type. To keep other trainers from trying to catch him since he has a tendency to wander off, he wears a black bandanna around his neck.

Comet the Luxray
Level: 36
Gender: Male
Moves: Thunderbolt, Crunch, Charge, Double Team
Nature: Relaxed
History: When Comet was a Shinx, he was given to Ann as a present by her father, who is an accomplished Pokemon trainer in his own right. He's the most laid back member of the team.

Lily the Phanpy
Level: 24
Gender: Female
Moves: Take Down, Roll Out, Earthquake, Defense Curl
Nature: Jolly
History: Lily is another Pokemon that Ann caught during her journey to become a great trainer. As the most light-hearted member of Ann's team, she often accepts the responsibility of adding comic relief in a situation she deems to be too serious.

History: Being an only child, Ann looked up to her father, an accomplished Pokemon trainer with various trophies and awards, and wanted to follow in his footsteps. At ten, she received her first Pokemon, a Torchic, from Professor Birch. She'd chosen a fire-type because her father owned a Charizard, and she was also influenced by living in Lavaridge Town, which has a fire-type gym. After training hard for about a year, she left on her Pokemon journey and managed, after many struggles and trials, to earn eight gym badges. At her last battle of the qualifying rounds, she easily lost to an older, more experienced trainer and returned home. During the next two years, she trained and caught as many Pokemon as she could before deciding to travel to Kanto to challenge the gyms there, but before she could leave Hoenn, she received a phone call from her mother, telling her that a letter from someone named Professor Truan had just arrived. Curious, she returned home to prepare for a journey to Four Island....

Power: By force of will, she is able to whip up powerful gusts of wind. She also has bird-like vision.

[Oooh, we're starting now? Vunderbar! BTW... long post is long! D=]

~Chapter 1: Four Island~
The Psychic

It was an oddly wet and raining evening in the bustling port town of Slateport City, Hoenn. The clock was slowly ticking its way towards seven-o'-clock, and those who had not returned home yet were hiding beneath their lovely little umbrellas so as to arrive to their alotted destinations dry as a desert.
Within the more suburbian section of the city, towards the eastern sea leading towards Pacifidlog Town, small houses dotted the streets like sentries at attention; lights lit up the place like eyes, wooden doors stood shut against the raining time of day, and all stood almost perfectly still.


Within one particular house, which was just as dull looking as the rest of them, a loud racket that sounded more like a battle of two steel-types than peaceful family time around the television could be heard. The neighbors didn't complain too much— not to the authorities, at least. They all knew that this racket, from 3472 Aere Drive, would last only for an hour before all grew still once more.

"Ha! C'mon, Regnorik! Ya can d' better than tha' eh— whoa! Watch th' neck!" The livingroom was plain as well; a rug dotted the middle of the floor, a sofa of green was pushed to one side with a television opposite of it, and a table with a lamp flanked the left side of the couch. However, the place looked to be in some form of shambles as two figures, humanoid in form, danced about the livingroom bearing... swords? A Gallade, bearing both his bladed arms, watched with an amused expression as his young, brunette trainer leaped back onto the couch; her bare feet were barely able to brace her weight and help ker keep balance as she walked backwards away from the armed Psychic and Fighting Type. However, the Gallade did not attack out of malice, and according to the rapier in the young brunette woman's hands, she had all she needed to defend herself, no matter the instance.

"Watch the neck, Miss Williams?" the Gallade, Regnorik obviously, laughed as his trainer balanced herself on the arm of the couch, rapier point aiming at the horn upon his chest. "I'm afraid it is you who should be watching out! You're liable to kill yourself!" "Kill, shmill! Tell it t' someone who—"

"—Oi! Mail call~!" The pair were rudely interrupted in their practice spar by the sound of a rasp male's voice. Multiple pairs of heads, made up of the remainder of the team plus the two sparring, spun around to the front door as the eldest member of Lauren's team, a Haunter of a dark violet coloration, floated through the door. "Whew! Quite a rain we're getting out there, everyone! BUT, the mail's nice and dry!" the Ghost and Poison type announced as he litterally pulled out a single envelope from his mouth and made a beeline for his trainer. "It's for you, Lauren!"

"Ah, thank ya, Taunt! Is it a bill?"
"Er... I don't know, actually...." Taunter admitted, appearing rather sheepish as his trainer began to open the mysterious letter...

Chapter 1: Four Island - Pt. 1
The morning sun peaked through the lace curtains covering the window of Jaiden's room in the Pokemon Centre. He suddenly felt a wave of heat flowing over him and his body began to tell him to wake up. A small purple, monkey-like, Pokémon was stirring at the foot of his bed. Right beside Jaiden's right foot. It was Aipom, Jaiden’s first and favourite Pokémon...

Aipom rolled up tighter as he tried to force himself to not realise it was morning, trying to gain a few more minutes sleep. His long and unusual tail slid across the bed, tickling Jaiden’s feet, as he tried to find a comfortable position for it.

Jaiden reacted to the gentle feel of fur brushing against his foot, he began to kick and soon his foot seemed like it had a mind of its own as it knocked against Aipom... who didn’t appreciate the rude wake-up call. Aipom stretched and turned to find out what the source of the problem was, he saw Jaiden’s foot jittering uncontrollably and let out a large bolt of lightning, in an attempt to stop the nuisance.

The electricity coursed through Jaiden’s body, causing him to wake-up immediately and leap straight out of bed, smashing his head against the side table before falling onto the floor with a loud thud. He rolled over and bumped the table again, “Thanks... Aipom...” he managed to say as he slowly rose to his feet, “Why did I even teach you that move?” he asked, watching the small Pokémon wake-up and run over to him happily.

“Good boy,” he said with a laugh, patting Aipom on the head vigorously. Jaiden turned to look at the clock on the side table, “6:13...” he mumbled, letting out a tired yawn before noticing a letter sitting behind the clock. “What’s this?” he questioned, picking up the envelope and ripping it open with a carefree attitude.

The teenage boy’s eyes jumped back and forth as he read the letter in his head, “So...” he began, trying to cover up another yawn, “Some guy wants me to go all the way to Four Island?” he asked, turning to Aipom... who just shrugged at him in return. “You up for an adventure, buddy?” he asked, turning to Aipom again to see what his response would be this time.

Aipom nodded vigorously and started jumping up and down, “That’s the spirit!” he said, folding up the letter, “You pack the bags while I get ready. We’re off to Four Island!” he shouted triumphantly, holding his fist in the air and smiling cheesily as he marched into the bathroom.

OOC: Very short post! Next one will be longer. =)

November 13th, 2008, 9:20 PM
~Chapter 1~
An Intriguing Letter...

Tarnished green-blue eyes began to scan the letter's contents as Lauren gripped it tightly between thumb, middle, and index fingers. The only other person who could see the contents of the piece of paper for the time being was Taunter, who floated and loomed over his trainer's shoulder as she began to read to herself.

"Four Island... tha's a day's journey on boat, if it's fast enough," the brunette mused out loud, still refusing to unleash the letter's contents to the rest of the team. Both for being a ghost and for being the longest-existing member of Lauren's team, the Haunter was "prestigious" enough to gain entry to the letter. "Less than tha' if we just teleported."

"... And exhausted our resources?" Regnorik telepathicly muttered as he eyed his trainer from his perch upon the living room rug. By now, the other members of the team—a Vaporeon, a shiny Gliscor, a Jolteon, and a newborn Vulpix—were staring at the letter and their trainer as if she held all the secrets to the world’s problems. A deep frown began to carve itself onto the young woman’s facial features as she began to pace along the floor before her couch; the rapier twirled about in her hands, with all others keeping a safe distance so as to avoid sliced hides. “Professor Traun… ‘ow did ‘e track me down? I don’t remember tha’ name,” the young woman mused in thought. “Furthermore… chosen? For wha’? By Arceus, why d’ th' freaks find us?”

“Miss Williams…” Regnorik gave his trainer a warning tone as she looked up and began to eye the rest of the team. She shrugged it off, however, and began to sheath the weapon still in her grip. “Hn. Not now, Regnorik. We ‘aven’t been on an adventure in a good while… plus, I’m curious.” Several groans, both human and animalistic alike, filled the room as the protests began: Are you insane? We just settled down! Who’s going to care for the house? What about the mail? What if we get hurt, or it’s a wild trap—

“Enough!” The brunette stomped her booted foot onto the ground and glared at all present, obviously unhappy. “Tha’ is quite enough! We’re goin’ an’ tha’s tha’! Taunter, m’ backpack! Regnorik, ask th’ Steinbecks if they’d look after th’ ‘ouse an’ mail while we’re gone—just th’ plants, at th’ most is all they ‘ave t’ look after…. Well, g’ on! Get!”

The addressed pair scattered to go do their allotted tasks as Lauren looked the letter over again.

Four Island… tha's near Kanto, isn’t it?

I 'aven’t been there in years….

November 13th, 2008, 10:10 PM
Chapter 1: Four Island - Pt.2
The magnet train came to a suddenly halt, nearly throwing Jaiden off of his seat and clean through into the next carriage. Luckily, he was holding on tight enough. Aipom sat patiently on his shoulder as they waited for the driver to open the doors, which happened almost as quickly as the train had stopped.

Jaiden took a deep breath and took his first steps into the Kanto Region; he was in Saffron City and was making his way to Four Island which he knew lay south of Kanto despite never being here before. He and Aipom made their way along the platform, trying to take in every little detail... this was the first time he’d been here and he already had to leave.

Jaiden walked out of the train station and quickly looked around to see everything he could in the small amount of time he was here. Aipom’s eyes were darting all over the place as he too tried to take in the vast amount of different culture that the large Kanto city had to offer.

“Well...” started Jaiden, turning to Aipom after he took in everything he thought was significant, “I guess we’re off to Vermilion.” Aipom nodded and started tugging at Jaiden’s hoodie, hoping that he would hurry up so that the eager Pokémon could see more of Kanto.

Jaiden laughed cheerfully. He pulled out a pair of black female sunnies and slipped them on, he then adjusted the white beanie atop his head before nodding and continuing on. All the people around took their time to stare at Jaiden’s unusual clothing as he walked by, he was wearing clothes for cold weather... but, it was well over thirty degrees in Kanto.


Jaiden carelessly made his way down Route 6, his hands were in his pockets and he was listening to the sounds of Pidgey’s chirping and Rattata’s scurrying. Kanto had so much to offer, and yet, Jaiden and Aipom were on their way to Vermilion City where they would be catching a speed boat to Four Island. Both trainer and Pokémon wished they could stay longer, but soon.... they’d want nothing more than to leave.

Two men in black outfits were arguing in the middle of the path, Jaiden wasn’t paying enough attention and accidently bumped one of them. “Hey!” called one of the men, “Who do you think you are?” he asked, glaring angrily at Jaiden.

“Huh?” he asked, turning around when he heard the man’s loud calls, “Oh... sorry,” he muttered, finally realising what had happened. With that, he turned and continued to make his way towards Vermilion City.

“Stop!” yelled the man, unclipping a red and white ball from his belt, “You can’t just run into me and expect it all to be ok! I challenge you to a battle...”

The words sounded sweet in Jaiden’s ears and he turned around swiftly, “I accept...” he said coolly. All of a sudden, he pulled a Poké Ball from his belt and tossed it onto the field, “Let’s go Bayleef!” he called and in a flash Jaiden’s proud grass Pokémon appeared.

“Go, Raticate!” yelled the man, releasing his own Pokémon onto the field; a large brown rat with sharp fangs that looked like they could do major damage.

“Bayleef, use Energy Ball!” called Jaiden, pointing towards the opposing Raticate. Bayleef smirked and opened its mouth, a ball of green energy began to gather inside and then suddenly shot towards the man’s Pokémon.

Raticate was hit head on and got thrown back a fair few feet, “Get up!” yelled the man. Raticate got to its feet and wobbled slightly, “Use Hyper Fang!” he ordered angrily, determined to win this battle. The large rat snarled menacingly and began scurrying towards Bayleef; it leapt into the air and dived at Jaiden’s grass Pokémon.

“Reflect!” yelled Jaiden quickly. Just in time, Bayleef produced a clear shield of energy in front of itself. Raticate crashed into it and chipped it front teeth, it fell to ground and began to roll about in pain. “Finish it off with another Energy Ball!” ordered Jaiden, knowing that he was about to win this battle.

Bayleef smirked again and collected energy just like it had before, it shot the harsh attack at Raticate... knocking it out cold at its trainers feet. The man returned his Pokémon and growled angrily, “This isn’t the last you’ve seen of Team Rocket!” he yelled, before he and his accomplice took off in the other direction.

Jaiden returned Bayleef in a beam of red light, “Team Rocket?” he questioned, a confused look on his face. “Whatever,” he muttered, shrugging and carrying on towards Vermilion.


Jaiden shuffled along the wooden dock of the shore of Vermilion City, this was it... the final leg before Four Island and an answer to the strange letter. Why would this man, whom he had never met before, send a letter all the way to Sinnoh just to get Jaiden to visit him?

The teenage boy shook off the feeling of uncertainty and made his way to the speed boat that would take him to Four Island, Aipom was still upon his shoulder... but was feeling slightly nervous after being attacked by that strange man and now they were going to meet some guy that they knew nothing about. It all seemed far too... strange, for his liking.

Chapter One : Letter from a stranger

Echo emerged from the dense forest wondering if it were day or night, as the forest's trees were so close together that all light seems to be blocked out and the forest always seems to be in a perpetual night. He gasped lightly it was morning and he would be able to rest at a pokemon center . But when he entered the center a pink haired woman said " Hello, do you happen to be Echo Soundfo Stainwood ? " . "Yes " Echo replied softly wondering what was happening at this time. " Well a letter has been sent for you young man" said Nurse Joy , " Here you go!" the pink haired woman handed a white envelope addressed to him . Echo went outside the Pokemon Center and hastily tore up the envelope spilling its contents all over himself once he had gathered the pieces of paper and held the letter in his left middle , and index finger it read in black ink " Congratulations! You have been chosen. You must meet me, Professor Truan at 9:00 on November 18th on Four Island (date due to change). Once you come and see me I will explain why you have been chosen, and what you must do. This is very important. I will see you soon.

~Prof. Truan" Echo said nothing besides " Four Island ? isn't that in Kanto?, Well I'm in good luck because I can just cross the border this evening " and he walked away towards the border while he thought " I'm glad that by trying to catch Celebi I already have all the tools I need, but what about this Proffesor Truan ? I don't think I've ever here'd of someone like that and this chosen stuff ? I mean chosen for what? thank Arceus I think I've gone insane listening to this bloke that for all I know could just be a kidnapper!. "

~Chapter 1: Four Island~
A few hours later...

"Aaah, nothing better than th' ocean!"

The brunette and her team had left as soon as the white and violet colored backpack Lauren owned had been stuffed to the brim with needed supplies. The time was currently close to eleven PM, local Slateport time; however, on the ocean, dawn was begining to break. Unable to fully sleep thanks to the brief contents of her letter (which was safely tucked away somewhere on her person), Lauren found herself leaned against the railing of the ship with two of her team mates at her side; Regnorik, ever the guard of the bunch, flanked her right side like a royal guard, whilst the newborn Vulpix, Rosiary, sat perched on her head. The poor little thing didn't enjoy water, of course, so she stayed partially hidden in her new owner's lap.

"Wha' d'ya think's up at Four Island, Regnorik?" The Gallade blinked and tilted his head in Lauren's direction as he mused over his answer. Crimson eyes watched as she bit down on what appeared to be an oversized sweet-sour poffin, and for a moment he couldn't help but wonder how those managed to stay fresh on their monthly trips from Canclave to Slateport. "Hn... I must admit, Miss Williams, that I am not entirely sure," Regnorik admitted as he looked her straight in the eyes.

"Tha' so? Well, fair enough, Regnorik; I'm at a loss as well, as ya can see..." Another chunk was bitten out of the large poffin while the young woman began to muse to herself. 'This 'ad really better not b' another trap.'

Chapter 1: Four Island - Pt.3
The speed boat sped towards its destination of Four Island, the wind blew through Jaiden’s hair and the suns raise grew stronger. He had finally realised that he shouldn’t have worn such warm clothing, his beanie was off and he had rolled the sleeves of his hoodie up to his elbows.

Jaiden looked around, hoping to find some water on board the ship, but there was none to be found. He shrugged and leant over the side of the boat, scooping up a handful of water out of the ocean... the boat was very low down and so this was possible to do this without falling overboard. He splashed the water onto his face and through his hair.

“That’s better...” he sighed in relief, he pushed his sunnies up to rest on his head, “I wonder how much further it is until we reach Four Island,” he thought out loud, “I wonder if there’s a map on board.” Jaiden made his way around the boat, it was quite small... designed to carry well under a dozen people and there didn’t seem to be any rooms.

Jaiden tapped on the window of the captain’s room, trying to get his attention, but he was too busy steer the boat. He sighed and slid down against the wall, “Well,” he started, turning to Aipom... who was resting upon his shoulder, looking as tired as Jaiden, “I guess all we can do is wait.”

Jaiden hung his head back and tried to rest for a while, he switched off all his senses and just sat... not thinking about anything at all, just letting time go by. The teenage boy felt a tingle in his fingertips and he began to get very cold, he didn’t hesitate though... this sort of behaviour was normal for him.

He breathed heavily and a puff of cold air, containing small drops of ice, escaped his mouth. Jaiden started to fall into an even calmer state and his strange behaviour started to become a lot more noticeable. His fingers were so cold that they had frozen themselves to the deck of the ship, his skin began to go pale and the air around him was freezing.

“Hey kid!” called the boat’s captain. Suddenly, Jaiden snapped out of his state and looked up to see the burly captain towering over him. “We’ve reached Four Island,” he said joyfully. Jaiden turned and saw the island towering over him, he nodded and the captain disappeared into his room again. The teenage boy looked down at his fingers, which were frozen to the ship, he yanked at them and with some force they came unstuck.

Jaiden slowly rose to his feet, “C’mon, Aipom,” he said, looking up at his friendly companion, “Let’s see what this Truan guy is all about...”

Chapter 1:
The beggining of something new.

Toby jumped foward kicking high. D followed shortly, firing bursts of thunder. Toby jumped apon her back, and hunched down. She flew towards the next target, and he jumped off, slashing down with his wooden sword. The targets shattered.

"Good, Good... Now you face me", Koga pulled a sword from a sheath, and threw a pokeball. His Crobat emerged from the ball, and landed on Koga's outstretched arm. "You pick your pokemon, boy," Koga taunted, with a slight tinge of Venom in his voice. Toby clucthed a poke-ball and threw it into the air. He tapped the button with the tip of his sword, before the pokemon energy erupted from the ball. Tekkain flew down, landing on Toby's arm, mimicking Koga.

"Alright kid, you've had your fun. Now Lets GO!" Koga leapt forward, swinging down with speed. Toby blocked quickly, and the pokemon began attacking each other. Koga hurtled at Toby at incredible speeds, but Toby countered just as fast. Above, Tekkain and Crobat were viciously battling, biting and raming into each other. Toby spun backwards, and ripped his sword into Koga. Or at least where he had been a moment before. Toby grunted in pain as the wooden blade thudded into his back. The door burst open, and Clair stood in the doorway.

"Toby! Koga! Come quick!" She left as fast as she'd arrived, mounting her Dragonair. Koga followed her quickly, sending out his Crobats. They grabbed his arms, and sped off. Toby mounted D, and they flew out of the Dojo. Toby was shocked at what was happening outside...

November 14th, 2008, 9:33 AM
"... CHU DON'T GO TO THE LIGHT!" Rizza screamed, only to find out that it was all a dream and Chu was there with Puffie staring at her on the bed. It was a brand new day, and she slept so early that she wake up early too. Staring at the clock, she had a hard time figuring out what the time was because of her sore eyes from just waking up. "I guess it's time for breakfast" Jumping out of the bed, she took a quick shower and wore her usual clothes. Her rainbow arm warmers felt a bit snug because she hadn't worn those for a long time. A yawn escaped from her mouth, followed by stretching to stop the sleep from creeping back. After dressing up, her face lit with joy to see that it was only 7:30 am. Yes, I could go train and jog for a bit she thought to herself, looking behind her to see Puffie rolling about with Chu on top. She giggled at the sight, but they needed to go now. They just stayed for the night at the Pokémon Center, and it would be rude for them to stay overtime. "Besides, we never know if there's a hole in the wall" she rolled her eyes. Quickly wearing her backpack, she got out Puffie's pokéball, "Let's go Puffie! You need to get in, so that you won't be blown away like last time" shuddering at the thought. She got stuck on a tree before, and if she didn't she could've gone to who know's where. Puffie whimpered, but eventually agreed. Chu hopped on to her side and they went downstairs.

"Yo Nurse Joy!" she said with utmost cheerfulness. Nurse Joy nodded at her, "Are you sure you don't want to stay longer?" Rizza shook her head, "We need to start now, or we'll be late of schedule. The first thing on it by the way, is breakfast" she giggled while giving Nurse Joy the keys to the room. Nurse Joy laughed with her, and let her move on "Oh and by the way, the canteen here has free food for trainers" Rizza's eyes glimmered at the sound of 'free food' and hurried to the canteen "Thanks for letting me know!"

At the canteen there were only a few trainers to be seen, Who wants to be caught dead at this early hour anyway? she thought. Lining up for the Trainer line she thought of where to go and what to eat. In the end she got a big bowl of cereal, a slice of cake and hot chocolate. Chu was staring at her wondering how can she eat that much, but still maintain her weight. "You will never know" said Rizza to her first Pokémon. She always knew what they were thinking of. She remebered the letter from Professor Truan and read it once more, slowly over her bowl of cereal. "I guess were headed for Four Island, eh Chu?" Chu nodded in agreement taking a bite out of the cake. Rolling her eyes, Rizza continued with her food and by the time she was finished, Chu refilled their bottle of water for the trip. "Four Island here we come!" said Rizza rushing outside. Bringing out the map she stared at it for a while and saw that Four Island was just around the corner. She took out Puffie and rode on her, "We need to get to Four Island Puffie, and I know you float on the wind." By luck would have it, the wind was pointing to Four Island: North-East. Rizza and Chu hopped on and Puffie breathed in revealing a gigantic air filled Pokémon. Riding on Puffie they quickly got to the land masses known as the Sevii Islands. But luck just ran out as they stepped on the port on Four Island, a creepy dude came by, wearing black with big red R's on it. "Must be Team Rocket" she whispered. Their notorious schemes led up to Hoenn, that her father depises them. Tiptoeing to the Laboratory near-by, which was Professor Truan, she failed and he saw here.

"YOU! Why'dda think ya're doin' playin' sneaky 'ere?" He asked in a tone unfamiliar for Rizza, from Solaceon Town, Sinnoh perhaps? her thoughts clouded her for a moment. "None of your business, mind you" said Rizza. The grunt took out his measley Rattata and Wurmple, "Playin' the hard way? What'vre floats yer boat missy" Rizza was stunned at the fact that she was called 'missy' Chu hopped on to battle stance and Puffie too. She went to a fit of rage and called, "DAMN YOU, I'LL SHOW YOU WHAT I'VE GOT YOU A-HOLE" Rattata tried to Headbutt Chu but it was no use since Chu had high defense. "Think you could do better than that? Chu Iron Tail that sucker" Rizza has totally gone to all out *****-y battle mode. A silver shine had shone on Chu's tail and fiercely controlling it, it smacked right into the Rattata's face. "Finish it with another one" Chu gladly accepted. The Rattata whimpered and with the final hit that led to a minor skidding of the Rattata, Chu had won the first round. "Chill here, Chu. It's Puffie's turn now." A small glint in her eye. The Grunt was shaking but she didn't care. No one can stop *****-y battle mode. "Puffie Wake-up Slap", but the Grunt called out "USE YER SLING SHOT DIMWIT!" A sticky gooey liquid of white wrapped around Puffie and covered herround lower body. "Puffie!" Rizza cried, furiously pounding the floor. The Grunt chuckled and said, "Now use your Tackle attack until it faints" The Wurmple nodded and made it's way, but when it was so close to Puffie Rizza recovered quickly and said. "Syke! Puffie use Bounce!" Puffie, using her uncovered mouth, breathed as much air as possible to cut the string, and bounced high in the air. Wurmple ran around and it's trainer grew stiff and Puffie crushed it with it's mighty accuracy. The Grunt shouted, "Yer be sorry someday m-" but before he could finish, Rizza sent him a fierce look, to remind him of what started this in the first place. While running off, he dropped some cash and picked it up. "Just 10 bucks? Man he's cheap" as she said while putting the money in her bag. "Puffie, return" and sent Puffie back to her ball. "Let's go Chu. Professor Truan awaits!"

[OOC: Long post. The battle was held at Four Island.]

~Chapter 1~
That's Trouble with a T...

"Regnorik, I'll b' back in a moment; goin' t' g' check on m' stuff," Lauren announced, turning away from the Gallade with her vulpix still perched upon her head. She approached the inner hallway of cabins, quite a ways away from her appointed "guard", soon enough. However, a rather rude awakening was about to make itself known in the early morning sea air...

Just as the trainer and her fire-type were about to head inside the bowels of the passenger ship, a hand roughly grabbed at Lauren's shoulder and yanked the pair backwards against the railing of the ship. Thank Arceus that little Rosiary had toppled to the side instead, taking Lauren's hat with her and landing both on the wooden deck of the speeding ship.

"H-hey, jerkface! Wha' th' hell was tha' ... for?" Lauren glared up at the offending owner of that hand, only to suddenly widen her eyes in surprise as she locked onto the black uniform and familiar crimson "R" of an omnious group she didn't want to see again. There were two of the grunts; males, possibly twins according to their matching blonde hair and green eyes, and maybe two years her junior... but both appeared to be rather sinister in spite of their youth.

"Well, well, looks like we found you, Angel!" Oh, wait... it was these two again? The... what was their last name? Sasarky? Yes... "Hn, th' Sasarky brothers? I thought ya two were done stalkin' me," Lauren grunted back as she slowly pulled herself up by her feet. For as long as she could remember, the twin grunts before her had been stalking her hide for a good, long while; although formidable battlers for grunts, the young woman still found them both to be royal pains in the arses.

"Done stalkin' you? Hardly, Angel! We heard you were busy with somethin' important, so we wanted to find out what it was!" the left one, Markus if she remembered correctly, announced. "That, and we're bored! We want to let you get a swim, if you catch our dri--"

Markus was interrupted by Lauren suddenly hoisting herself up onto the middle rail of the deck and pushing herself off; seems those acrobatic training classes had done some good afterall. Landing on her feet to Markus' left, she dropped to the ground before he could properly react and swung her right leg out to trip him up. The poor git was floored, face-first, while his brother kicked at Lauren's side to distract her. Direct hit!

"Nhack!" Gasping sharply, the young woman fell back and clutched her side as the other Sasarky brother, Luis, started to advance on her with a Poke Ball in his hands. "C'mon, Angel,
you aren't that agile anymore!" Luis announced as his floored sibling began to gather himself up to his feet. "Why don't you just come along with us, and everythin'll work out better for all?"

"Miss Williams! You didn't tell me we had company aboard!" Three humans and one tiny Pokemon tensed up at the sardonic, annoyed tone in Regnorik's telepathic voice. Very slowly, the Rocket grunts turned around and came face and leg to face with the Gallade, who was tensed up and glowing a faint blue coloration. "Ah, Masters Markus and Luis Sasarky! How lovely to see you again!" Without bothering to await a command from his trainer, the Psychic and Fighting Pokemon tilted his head up and reached up, snagging both young men by their collars with his hands.

"H-hey, Reggy! I didn't know you were still with Angel!" Luis announced, still clutching a Poke Ball tightly in his hands. The Gallade slowly shook his head and began to walk over to the railing, dragging along the two grunts behind him. "Didn't I tell you not to call me 'Reggy'?" Without waiting for a reply, the Gallade threw both arms back and threw the pair overboard, listening with glee as two splashes answered his actions....


"Are you alright, Miss Williams?" Lauren was leaned against Regnorik's arm, bracing herself as she gently pulled up her sweater to reveal the welt growing on her side. "Ngh... it'll bruise, but... nothin' feels broken," the young woman announced as she pulled away from the Gallade and scooted backwards to scoop up Rosiary. The poor little Vulpix was trembling in her arms and whimpering softly.

"Oi, there, there, relax, Rose. Th' danger's over." Softly, a gloved hand stroked the newborn's head fur while Regnorik placed the woman's hat back onto her head. "Oh, uh, Regnorik?"

"Er... why didn't they... attack?"

To this question, the Gallade chuckled to himself and nodded back towards the ocean, where two black specks could be seen thrashing through the water as they tried to swim after the boat. "They're scared of me, Miss Williams. I used to rough them up pretty badly."

"Is... tha' so?" Lauren arched a brow and looked back towards where the Sasarky brothers were swimming. "... Thanks for tha' advice, Reggy; I'll b' sure t' keep tha' in mind..."

Chapter 1 - As If It Weren't Long Enough...

The bright, blinding sun showered its rays over the run-down tower. Stray beams went straight through the holes in the walls, gazing upon the girl lying down. At last, a single ray blasted its light into her eyes, waking her from her peaceful sleep. Yawning, the girl pulled out a crumpled up paper of some sort. It was a letter she had received a while back, and she just needed to make sure where she had to go.

"Four Island... KANTO??? Well, I could either take the train from Goldenrod to Saffron and then go down to Vermilion, or I could trek all the way to Olivine, ride the boat there and then ride the other boat in Vermilion..." she said with a tone of exhaust. "But... I thought a Rainbow Pass was needed? And I need a card to ride any of the boats and the train. Now wait a second, Colin supplied me with one of those, right?" Carefully reaching into her bag, the girl pulled out a card. Simply but steady, she peered at the text on the card. It read "Train Pass". Giving a sigh of relief, the girl then felt something under the card. Another card, roughly the same size. She pulled the two apart, and the other read "S.S. Aqua Pass". Well, Gale, this is very lucky, if I do say so myself, she thought. But I'll still need a Rainbow Pass...

Once in Goldenrod (as she had always wanted to ride a train), Gale headed straight for the underground area. She had always gone there once a day to get her Pokemon groomed. However, the younger and less experienced of the "Haircut Brothers" was there, which meant her Pokemon wouldn't get the best pampering. Nonetheless, it was better than nothing. Gale sent out her four Pokemon, and the boy immediately went to work. Noticing Ruby trying to shrug the boy away, Gale pulled him aside. She knew her Grotle didn't like to be groomed, mainly because the trees on his shell supplied him with more power. It was annoying having to explain it to the younger brother each time, since he always forgot, so Gale just stopped telling him.

After a mediocre grooming, the bell rang, marking the leaving of the next train. Gale rushed over and hopped on, ready to go into the city of Saffron...

(Hope that was an OK beginner. Just FYI, if some of my posts lack during weekdays, it's most likely 'cause I'm at school.)

@DGexe, Kev XY, Gallade of the sand, Eletj, Rizapop, Pikataro - Great Posts
@Aragorn199 - read other posts to see what they should be like. No *final fatasy music*, or *yawns*. and correct grammar.


Grey woke up with a start. He looked over at the alarm clock. It read 6:00. He woke up so early because he was at the PokeCenter, and he never slept well away from home. Where home was. He could feel the warm bluber of his Spheal at his feet. Also was his Ralts, which was napping quietly by Spheal. Grey reached over to the bedside table. He picked up his only PokeBall which still had a Pokemon in it.

"Come on out, Zubat." Grey muttered drowsily. The Zubat sprang out of the PokeBall, wide awake. He flew over the bedside table, nocking everything down. Grey reached to the floor and picked up his Pokemon's mess. He picked up the alarm clock, his three PokeBalls for his Pokemon, and then somthing that wasn't there the night before. It was an envelope. Grey tore it open and read. It was from some guy named Professor Traun. The letter was very scarce and gave away no information.

"Okay, guys. Lets go. We need to get to Four Island, Kanto. It's going to be a long day."

Grey got up and gathered his belongings that consisted solely as a backpack. He swung it over his shoulder and made it toward the front of the PokeCenter.

"Hello, would you like some breakfast?" said the ever-kind Nurse Joy.

"Uh, sure. Anything you have would be fine. Also some Pokemon Food."

"Okay, just one second." The Nurse disappeared behind a door and soon enough a Blissey came to Grey caring a trey of food.

"Bliss! Bliss-bliss!" the Pokemon said. Blissey set down the trey, and handed each Pokemon and person their meal, respectively.

Spheal quickly dug into his food. The pleasantly plump Pokemon never missed a meal. Ralts and Zubat weren't quite as vigourously digging in. But Zubat was eating at a normal pace, and Ralts was barley touching his food. Grey recieved cereal, an apple, and a glass of orange juice. He quickly ate the food, and walked up to Nurse Joy.

"Where can I get a pass for the S.S. Tidal?"

"Right here," the nurse said,"We sell them at a discount."

Grey dug into his poket and handed the nurse some money. She went to the back again and gave him one trainer pass, and three Pokemon passes. Grey walked up to his Pokemon, waving the passes and smiling.

"Four Island, here we come!" he said.

He gathered his Pokemon, returned the tray, with the leftover food to the Blissey, and they were off. Grey held the Spheal because he couldn't keep up, and was flanked on his right by Ralts, and on the left in the air by Zubat. They walked like this all the way to the S.S. Tidal station. Grey and his Pokemon walked in and was caught by the receptionist.

"All Pokemon must be in their PokeBalls while boarding," She said sternly,"You may release them later once on the S.S. Tidal."

"Okay guys, well you heard her: in the PokeBalls."

The Pokemon, reluctantly went into their PokeBalls.

"Do you have a pass," the stern lady said again. Grey flashed his pass at her, and was off.

He boarded the ship, and soon let his Pokemon out once it was on the ocean.

"It's going to be a loooong ride," Grey said.

November 14th, 2008, 8:51 PM
Chapter 1 - #1

The letter came on the 10th, encased in a larger envelope containing two handwritten pages from his mother. It had come to Verdanturf (she wrote) and she was forwarding it on. Everything was fine back home. His Pokemon missed him already. Samantha was being a handful, staying out late on school nights and getting all sorts of bad habits. She hoped he wasn't feeling sick, since the flu was going around...

The letter interrupted this everyday banality. Alexander stared at it for a while, reading and rereading the printed lines. "You have been chosen..." For what? A promotional event? The letter seemed too transparent to be a scam. "This is very important." Far too transparent.

The name Truan meant nothing to him. Four (Floe) Island, he knew, was one in the Sevii Archipelago down south, not suitable for a vacation spot but a popular destination for Pokemon trainers, who flocked to it like pilgrims to a saint's tomb. Yes, there could be some sort of research falicity there. He had never gone himself. But the journey could not take more than a day. At the most, he could be there and back within three days, which wouldn't put him back far in terms of coursework. The calender on the left side wall was crammed with pen lines trumpeting due dates and test days, but none were before the 25th.

The matter settled in his mind, he smiled with satisfaction and pinned the letter to his corkboard, where it hung in full view until the 17th.

Meanwhile Alexander busied himself on campus, sticking his face into every classroom, spreading around the name Truan. Nobody knew it. The students merely shrugged. The professors stared as though woken from a deep slumber: they were so deeply entrenched in their classes, history, that current events reached them as a distant cry and they only stirred briefly. Alexander concluded that the Professor was either new to the field, or else very modest and kept a low profile.

The last step, as the 18th approached, was to pack his things into a duffle bag on wheels and bid goodbye to the university. Passing through downtown Slateport, he stopped at the Pokemon Centre and imported three pokemon - Nix, Kelby, and Jackie. Then he hailed a cab.

"To the harbour," he said through the window.

His driver was talkative and wanted to know where Alexander was going. "Floe Island," he said. "I have some business there," and smiled brightly. He was watching the driver through the rearview mirror over a bowl of Chinese take out, beef and rice. The rain had suddenly begun bucketing down and it was all the windshield wipers could do to keep the view ahead from smearing into a watercolour mess. Through the cab windows Alexander could make out a gloomy morning sky and a parallel river of traffic, fragmented into a grey mosaic by the drops of rain on the glass. His poke balls were in the pockets of his long brown coat.

When Alexander stepped out onto the tarmac it was still pouring. The ferry was in sight, taking on a long line of passengers, families and couples waiting patiently with their umbrellas open. He opened his as well (it was white and grey) and joined them, the duffel bag in his other hand, and paced the pavement for a while before boarding. The smartly dressed attendant took his ticket and handed him a stub with his room number on it. The lounge was warm and stuffy...

Chapter 1 -#2

Alexander wasn't new to cruises; this was his third. Again, the problem presented to him was what to do with his time. Depending on the weather, the trip would take 18 hours. Blessedly, sleeping would take up 8 of those hours, and meals in the large white dining hall would take up 2 more, but what of the rest? He began with a brief overview of his room. It was a small, modestly furnished bedroom with a door on the right leading to the bathroom. A desk with a chair stood by the wide window that opened onto the balcony: he checked that the lock worked. In one corner was a potted plant. The menu of the day was lying on the royal blue coverlet, which was propped up by two large pillows. Beside the bed, an oval braided rug in white and blue covered the wooden floor. The bathroom was clean and contained dailiy necessities such as soap and a set of towels. The overall effect was neat and pleasing to the eye. Alexander was satisfied and unpacked at once, making himself master of the room. The second thing he did was let out his Pokemon at last. They crowded around, greeting him in their different voices. Nix sat on the bed, testing the quality of the pillows; Jackie went sniffing around the floor and followed the trail into the bathroom; Kelby ran in circles for a little while, then curled up on the coverlet like a large yellow cat.

After a late, second breakfast in the buffet with the other passengers Alexander extended his initial exploration to the hallways and corridors of the ship. Walking down the long blue carpet between the rooms, his shoulders straight and his hands folded behind his back, he took note of which doors were closed and which were open, which were silent and which were radiating sounds of life. He found the janitorial closet, and the emergency map (In Case Of Fire), which he studied facetiously, his face close to the glass, and memorized. In another hallway he found a troupe of children running to and fro, almost bouncing off the wall, and was glad that his room was in a different part of the ship. One of the boys, sighting the houndoom by Alexander's heels, timidly approached and asked for a battle.

Alexander laughed and accepted. The boy couldn't have been older than 11, and his actions seemed typical of the young trainer. He brought out his snubull, which growled and gnashed its teeth. Jackie tensed and prepared to leap.

"Ember!" The dog belched fire at his opponent; the snubbull yelped and jumped back from the smoke and pain.

"Tackle!" The snubbull charged, ramming the houndoom's side and almost knocking him over, but Jackie was a good five pounds heavier and kept his feet planted firmly on the ground.

"Bite!" Jackie leapt at his opponent's throat, who tried to counter with his own jaws. The houndoom jumped back out of range and circled, lunging and retreating, lunging and retreating. The snubbull turned left and right, trying to tackle the moving target, but Jackie's teeth found their mark first and the snubbull toppled, helpless though still growling.

The kid, recalling his pokemon, seemed more than a little stunned. Cringing mentally, Alexander continued down the hall with victorious Jackie in tow. He wished the younger trainers weren't so quick with following the Guide, which stated that trainers had to battle if their eyes so much as met - but he put the incident aside quickly and continued onto the balcony that stretched around the upper passenger levels.

In this manner he became familiar with the whole of the ship, both its machinery and the people who kept it running. By evening he had been on the lower levels and caught a glimpse of the engine room. Striding past the attendants in their blue coats, he smiled, and they, thinking him quite strange, raised their caps politely.

In the morning he woke early, impatient to arrive, and watched the grey dawn from his window. The clock read 7 am (daylight savings, you know). Breakfast would be served in two hours at the least, and his mind would not let him sit still, so he dressed and went up onto the deck where he stood at the railing, face into the cold wind that filled his ears and made his coat billow, and scratched Jackie's head, who sat habitually at his side (Nix and Kelby were still sleeping in their poke balls). For a time it seemed like the occupants of the ship were in slumber, and the calling of wingulls and the rush of the wind were the only sounds, but after a time he noticed voices behind him, and turned to look.

He could see three figures, two male and one female, and although it was hard to tell in the dim
light, the scene looked violent: one of the men had forced the woman up against the railing; then she kicked out, and one of the men was down on the deck instead. Drawing his loat coat around him, Alexander made his way closer to the trio, stepping carefully to disguise the sound of his footfalls. But they didn't seem to be listening; at least, they hadn't noticed the gallade approaching from behind.

From a distance, he could see how the gallade took each man in hand and unceremoniously dumped them overboard. The young woman - he could tell her age now - had straightened up, holding a vulpix in her arms, when he had come close enough to shout - "Hey!" He waved, smiling sheepishly and biting his tongue. An impulse made him step to the side of the railing and look overboard, scanning the choppy waves for the figures of the two men before looking up at Lauren again, perturbed. "What about those two...?"

{ooc: There, that gets me up to date with your character, DGexe. Unfortunately I'll be gone until Tuesday, so no replies from me till then.}

November 15th, 2008, 7:00 AM
Soon Grey found himself slowly falling asleep, though his Pokemon eagerly wanted to play. Spheal was rolling around on the floor, trying to ram into Ralts who would quickly teleport away. Zubat was flapping his wing as fast as he could, trying to do somthing, but what that somthing was Grey didn't know. Someone knocked at the door.

Grey started drowsily sleeptalking,"Ohh, good... I guess its time to get off the... ship...,"

"Ha! The ship isn't even halfway to Slateport," a man said with a crimson-red 'R' on his shirt as he barged into Grey's room. "Come on out, Koffing!"

"Kof-Koffkoff,"the Pokemon said, threatiningly.

Grey was wide awake now. He realized that he was in a battle.

"Come on, Spheal! Lets just finish this before it starts!" Spheal came up and stood at attention ready to attack. "Aura Beam!" Grey yelled. The Pokemon gathered a rainbow colored energy in its mouth, then suddenly shot it at the Koffing.

"Koffing, use sludge!" the Pokemon gathered sludge from who knows where, and hurled it at Spheal. Spheal became poisoned, slowly losing health little by little.

"Spheal, use ice ball!" Grey said. A small ball of ice formed around Spheal, and Spheal pushed it across the room to hit Koffing. The his was succesful, but Spheal was still losing health little by little.

"Koffing, use assurance!" The Koffing was mad, and didn't want to listen to its owner. Instead, it used selfdestruct. It sounded as if a bomb went off, automatically fainting the Koffing. The grunt ran up and caught the Koffing out of the air. "You dumb, dumb Pokemon!" he muttered.

Even though the foe already fainted, Spheal fainted too. Grey ran up and picked up his Pokemon. The grunt was already gone. "Ralts, watch over Zubat, and stay here. I'll be at the healing center," Grey was out of the door before he said 'center'. He ran down the halls untill he found Nurse Joy. "Nurse Joy, can you heal my Spheal?"

"Yes, just let me see him." Grey handed the nurse his Spheal, who gave it to Blissey to go heal. Grey waited for a few minutes before Blissey came back with Spheal.

"Thanks so much," Grey said as a man said over the intercom: "We have arrived at Slateport City. Please get off the ship before we leave for the Battle Tower."

Chapter 1-Four Island Part 1

Damn, this is quite a setback, Ryan thought to himself.

He had already gotten up, brushes his teeth, and eaten his breakfast. Aron, Poliwag, and Charizard were all ready to go too. This was supposed to be his first day of the start of his Hoenn journey, apparently not. This, Professor Truan, had sent him a strange letter, telling him to come to Four Island in Kanto immediately. Ryan would not like to return to Kanto. Too many bad things had happened there. However this seemed urgent, and appeared like it was important.

But nothing was more important then starting his Pokemon Journey. This Professor Truan would have to do with out him. Ryan paced back and forth in the kitchen, before picking up his belongings and some bacon and walking out the door. Ryan looked at the city of Mossdeep. It was a nice city, and had been his home for close to 3 years now. It was finally time to go.

Ryan released the pokeball containing Charizard. The enormous orange dragon roared as he was released. Aron and Poliwag were already out of their pokeballs, jumping around, excited about the new quest they were about to embark on. The three jumped on Charizard's back. Ryan felt warm inside as he remembered his father's last words to him before going to his work today. It was finally his time.

Charizard took off with a flap of his wings, leaving a small gust of wind behind. Soon, they were in the air, flying towards Lilycove City, where they would stop and get supplies at the large department store there. For a second, Ryan's mind drifted back to that mysterious letter from Professor Truan, but dismissed it. Now was the time to focus. His goal was to be the best.

Little did he know, he would soon be brought to Professor Truan, whether he liked it or not...

Chapter 1 cont. - Dumb Luck

Finally making it into Saffron City, Gale took the time to take in the breathtaking sites around her. So...large... she thought as she gazed up at the towering skyscrapers. But Goldenrod is much, much bigger, I do believe... She then noticed a seemingly homeless person (as practically any middle-class and even upper-class person can pull off a homeless person act just to get free food or money) sitting to the side of the largest building in Saffron. After watching him for a couple minutes, the man suddenly got up and walked away aimlessly. Gale assumed he was either drunk, or he was off to beg for money from others. She headed south towards the gateway, and continued on her way to Vermilion.

Vermilion - not as big as Saffron, but perhaps more sanitized? At least, that's what Gale had in mind. This was where she was to embark on the ship to Four Island, but she still didn't have a Rainbow Pass.

"Excuse me... Gale?" a voice called from behind. Gale swiveled a complete 180, and saw Jasmine running towards her.

"Um... Hi! Why are you here?" Gale asked curiously. Jasmine took a second to catch her breath, then made eye contact with Gale.

"Well, you see... I wanted to go to Celadon to get some items for my Ampharos. After all, there are some items you can get in Celdaon that you can't get in Goldenrod." Gale had to agree with that, even though she had never been to Celadon. "And so I just got off the boat from Olivine. What are you doing here?" Jasmine added patiently.

"Well, I need to get to Four Island... But I need a Rainbow Pass..." Gale said, sighly monotonously. Jasmine immediately whipped over her shoulder her small purse, and at once pulled out a pass of some sort. Gale stared at the pass in amazement; it had a gorgeous rainbow with the seven colors (INCLUDING indigo; Gale hated how that color was sometimes not included), and the background was as blue as the sky in the daytime.

"Is this what you are looking for?" Jasmine asked merrily. "Well, I honestly don't need it, so you can have it..." She squeezed the card into Gale's hands and walked away. Gale looked at the card, dumbfounded that it was that easy to get a Rainbow Pass. I need to start befriending more people... she thought as she headed towards Vermilion's dock.

~Chapter I: Four Island~
You had to ask that... ?

"Hm?" Lauren slowly turned around on her heel, tensing up for another fight; it appeared that the slight shock from the last one had not dissappated yet. Her dull colored eyes narrowed and locked onto Alexander. Just behind her, Regnorik appeared to look slightly more calm, but he couldn't help placing a hand protectively on his trainer's shoulder.

"..." She arched a chocolate brown brow at him and watched as he looked for the overboard Sasarky brothers. The other eyebrow arched at the question that soon followed; she snorted with disgusted.

"Wha' 'bout them? If they 'ave their old teams still, they'll survive," she announced rather uncaringly as she turned for her original destination; her room. "Don't give a damn 'bout Team Rocket; isn't worth it. Come along, Regnorik."

Sensing that resistance would be met with more annoyance than either human or Gallade wished to deal with, the Pokemon bowed apologeticly to Alexander and turned to leave with the brunette.

"Oh my, I can't belive you are so cute, Kuma. At first I thought you could only love and nuture Pokemon, but now it's different. After looking into those eyes, I realize that you are the one I want to be my boyfriend." "Do you really mean that, Lily? I felt the same way when I first met you and now you are telling me you did too. This is what I have been waiting for." "Come to me my dear Kuma." "Here I come my sweet Lily." Kuma runs toward Lily. As he runs he seems to get a weird feeling from his side. He turns around and sees Croagunk holding out her hand ready to deliver a Poison Jab. Kuma turns around to look at Lily for help. He turns around and finds that there is an army of Croagunks each ready to use Poison Jab. "How coulod this sweet dream turn into such an awful nightmare!" screams Kuma. The Croagunks jump into the air and prepare to dive. Kuma closes his eyes and feels a jab in his side. Kuma springs out of his bed and lands on the floor made of oak. "That dream must have been my reality." he groans.

After that he looks up and sees that Croagink is nowhere to be found. The room is empty and clean. "Grandma must have cleaned my room last night. As a heavy sleeper I couldn't even hear her vacuum. I wonder where the others are?" so he goes to his window. When he looks out the window, he sees that his Pokemon are training with his Grandparents. His grandfather was using Rhyhorn and Fearow, while Grandmother used Growlithe. Croagunk was dodging a Flamewheel, Piplup was having a battle of the strongest Pecks against Fearow, and Eevee was trying his hand at using speed to overcome Rhyhorn. Kuma looked on and then heard an alarm go off. He searched his room looking for the sound. He finally opened his drawer and saw his alarm clock was the cause of the noise. He grabs it and shuts it off. However, he notices that under the clock there is a letter. He grabs the letter and opens it. The letter reads: Congratulations! You have been chosen. You must meet me, Professor Truan at 9:00 on November 18th on Four Island (date due to change). Once you come and see me I will explain why you have been chosen, and what you must do. This is very important. I will see you soon.

~Prof. Truan

Kuma takes the letter and throws it in the trash. "I can't have these complications. I have to start training for entering Pokemon Contest. Once that's done I may go to this "Four Island", but not right now." says Kuma. He packs up his stuff into a bag, gets dressed, and heads downstairs. He notices breakfast is not on the table. His stomach begins to grumble and so he goes outside. He goes out the door and into the crossfire of the three on three battle. The attacks hit him hard and he falls over. Kuma slowly opens his eyes again and sees his Grandparents and the Pokemon standing around him.

"We are so sorry dear, but we wanted to get some training done with your Pokemon. We were going to wake you, but you kept talking about Lily and so I knew it was a sweet dream. Us Grandmothers never wake kids from sweet dreams." says Kuma's grandmother. A chill runs down his back and he sees that Croagunk is preapring a Poison Jab. Kuma quickly hides behind his Grandparents. Croagunk continues to stare Kuma bullets. Kuma's grandmother prepares breakfast for the whole family. They each eat and when they are full go outside. Kuma goes up the stairs and packs his stuff to get ready for his journey. "I will be gone for a while. My friend said their training is really rigorious. I have to be ready for everything on this trip." he puts his bag on his back and leaves out the house. Piplup and Eevee are each on his shoulder and Croagunk is walking alongside him. After two hours of walking, they arrive at their destination. However, Kuma notices that the door has been kicked down and the house is dark. "This is not good," Kuma remarks.

An Arbok jumps out of the house along with a Raticate, and Houndour. Two trainer come out of the windows with Kuma's friend tied up. They turn around and notice Kuma. "Rick, looks like we have been spotted. We should take care of him too." says the man dressed in black. The men dressed in black also have "R's" on their chest. The Pokemon under their control begin to move towards Kuma. Kuma prepares for a battle.

Chapter 1:
Part 2:

Toby gasped. There before him, was a full scale attack on Blackthorn Gym. Clair and Koga were holding out valiantly, but without help, they wouldn't last long. Toby blew his whistle, and a low growling sound was heard. 7 Dragonairs erupted from Dragon's Den. The sky rumbled. The rain poured down. D flew higher, and Toby pointed his sword towards the attackers.

"Dragons! ATTACK!" He charged forward, his posse of dragons close behind. He scanned the area. The closest attackers were using some weird, metalliac pokemon. It looked like a silver rock with four arms. Toby finally got a look at them. They were wearing black uniforms, with a big R imprinted on the front. They also had a pair of black hound pokemon leading them. They seemed to dislike the rain, Toby guessed they were fire-type pokemon.

"Dragons! HYDRO PUMP!!" 8 blasts of water streamed from the dragons' mouths, hitting the pokemon dead-on. The hounds cringed before the water rushed into them, and fainted almost instantly. The rock-like pokemon showed no signs of weakness.

"Dragons! DRAGON RUSH!" The 8 Dragons sped at the pokemon, energy encircling them. They smashed into the rocks, sending them hurling back. Toby checked one last time, before flying to Clair.

"You alright?" He asked.
"Nothing a bit of rest won't fix. Lance is inside with their commander". An eruption from inside confirmed this. "Toby, theres something I want you to see". She pulled out an envolope, handing it to Toby. He ripped it open, and red the letter aloud.
Congratulations! You have been chosen. You must meet me, Professor Truan at 9:00 on November 18th on Four Island (date due to change). Once you come and see me I will explain why you have been chosen, and what you must do. This is very important. I will see you soon.

~Prof. Truan
"Proffessor Truan? Ever heard of them?" he asked.
"No, never... It could be a trap".
"Of course its a trap. Thats why I have to go. Think you can handle things from here?" Clair laughed.
"A couple of weaklings like this? Don't you have more faith in your auntie!"
"Todays the 18th, I better go now". Toby climbed onto Deedee's back. "Tell Uncle Lance I said Goodbye!" Then he was gone, a fast speck on the horizon.

On the road to Four Island!
Part 1.

Congratulations! You have been chosen. You must meet me, Professor Truan at 9:00 on November 18th on Four Island (date due to change). Once you come and see me I will explain why you have been chosen, and what you must do. This is very important. I will see you soon.

~Prof. Truan

Tamika’s eyes scanned the letter over and over again, until she tore her gaze away from the paper and sighed. How the heck am I supposed to get to four Island. Tamika and her Pokémon were resting at Slateport's beach, she glanced at her Golduck, who was sitting beside her, watching Pachirisu and Houndour goof off with amused red eyes, well more like Pachirisu was annoying the hound, who was resting on the warm sand, soaking up the sun’s rays. Pachirisu was poking Houndour, who just shut his eyes and tried to ignore the electric Pokémon and not be provoked.

Spear was sitting on the opposite side of Tamika, quietly nibbling on a Lava Cookie. Tami frowned while she glanced at the Beedrill. Its not like Spear could fly me all the way there and Golduck might get tired, carrying me for that long. "Hmm maybe I can catch a boat, I mean we are at Slateport City, but who can I ask that'll be willing enough to lend me a boat" Tamika turned to Golduck, who glanced back "Hey Golduck, you know if there are any boat's sailing off to Kanto" Golduck shook his head. No. I don't know. He replied and Tamika pouted "I see, well then I guess we should start looking around then" Tami stood up and brushed off the sand "Houndour! Pachirisu! Get over here guys, we've got work to do."

Houndour yawned and stretched briefly, before standing up and trotting over to Tamika, Pachirisu hopped on Houndour's back catching a ride "Alright. Here's the plan guys" Tamika began looking at the 4 of her Pokémon "Divide and conquer, I need you guys to search around and maybe asks some of the native Slateport Pokémon if there's anyway we could catch a boat to Kanto, got it?" the four nodded "Alright. We meet back here in One hour, so get going!" Golduck was the first to go, heading towards the waters near the beach, while Pachirisu and Houndour ran into town and Spear looked around nervously "oh C'mon Spear, you take to the skies and go talk to the bird Pokémon and stuff" Spear looked at Tamika with wide red eyes.

"You want to come with me don't you?"

When Spear nodded and hovered beside her buzzing Tamika smiled before giving an exasperated sigh "Alright, but after this you gotta start doing stuff on your own Spear..... we're gonna work on that okay" the Beedrill responded with a happy buzz before the two walked... well Spear flew but you get the point, into town.

"I can't believe after all that looking, no one knew where to catch a boat to Kanto" Tamika was sitting on the sand glumly with an equally saddened Spear by her side, the two had no luck in finding a ride to Kanto. Spear floated beside her and nudged her with one of his stingers Tamika looked at Spear, who gave her an apologetic smile "Aww I didn't mean to be so down Spear, a-and you did nothing wrong, its just... I feel like I'm letting the Professor down."

There was a loud bark in the distance.

"Chipa! Chipachiii!"

Tamika looked up and saw Pachirisu and Houndour running towards her she smiled hopefully as the duo made their way over to her and Spear "Hey guys, you find anything" Houndour shook his head no, as did Pachirisu her hopes were shattered and she lowered her head "Oh" Tamika sighed sadly and folded her arms across her chest "Looks like we won't be getting to Four Island in time......"

Oh quit being such a drama queen.

Tamika blinked and watched as Golduck came walking towards her "Golduck! Does that mean you found someone?" the blue duck nodded and stepped aside, there was an old man trailing behind him with a Wingull perched on his shoulder "Ahoy there!" he waved "I hear your in a bit of trouble" Tamika nodded "Yes, but who are you and why are you following my Golduck"

The old man laughed "Aye, I'm Mr. Briney and this is my darling Peeko, she has a tendency to find trouble wherever she goes..." he stated with a kind smile before starting his story "Well, Peeko and I were at the beach, waiting for a friend but Peeko was getting a bit restless so she went out in the water to play... only she didn't know the water was Sharpedo infested, the mean ol Sharpedo attacked Peeko and I couldn't do anything to help, but then your Golduck came and clobbered those bullies, if it weren't for him, my poor Peeko would've been seriously hurt" Briney smiled softly while he pet his Wingull on the head "I owe your Golduck Peeko's safety, so when he came to me for help, I couldn't turn him down" The light that had died in Tamika's eyes quickly came back as she stared at the old man "But... are you sure you'll be able to help us get to Four Island... I mean you must've been at Slateport for a reason"

"Yeah there was a reason, but my work is done here, I just had to drop May off so she could deliver a letter to Captain Stern, she called me and told me that she was done and is continuing to Mauville City, so I'm free to do as I please, isn't that right Peeko" Mr. Briney asked his Wingull, who nodded from her spot on his shoulder "It will probably take us a couple of days to reach Vermillion City and once there you can catch the S.S Tidal to Four Island"

"Really! Thanks so much Mr. Briney!"

"No Problem, now come along, my boat isn't to far from here"

Tamika nodded and recalled Spear, Golduck and Houndour, while Pachirisu hopped onto her shoulder "Okay! We're on the road to Four Island!"

"Chipa Chipa!"

Ch. 1 - #3

Her animosity came as a surprise to him, and Alexander's eyebrows rose as well. It puzzled him. Wasn't it natural to have some concern for the flinging overboard of people, criminals or not? Something important must have happened here, and he had missed it. The wind blew his hair left and right as he watched her departing figure disappear into the dusky morning light.

He placed his hands on the railing and looked overboard a second time, searching the water for any bobbing shapes. All he could see was the white wake the ship threw aside as it churned through the waves. The men would be far behind by now, too far to throw them a lifering. This knowledge did not stop him from running the length of the ship, not bothering to muffle the sound this time, and checking. He folded his arms on the cold metal railing and studied the portion of ocean within visibility as the wind buffetted the back of his neck. It was futile. All he could see was a strip of pink sky beneath a tall cover of dark cloud, heralding the morning.

When Alexander turned back, Jackie was whining and pawing at his shoe, cleary saying that there were more fun things to do than staring at the ocean. He decided to leave the matter alone for the time being. The young woman would probably be at breakfast; maybe he would get some information out of her then. In good spirits once more, he returned to the interior of the ship, stepping gratefully into the warmth of the stairwell.

~Chapter I: Four Island~
Mmm.... Pi*

And at breakfast Lauren was, when that time came. The journey to Four Island was growing closer to its end, and it was making the woman a tad antsy. She sat at one of the long tables set up for meal time, towards one corner close to the dining hall's exit. Rosiary was settled in her lap, occasionally poking her head over the edge of the table to sniff at it. And of course, she was swatted back down by her trainer.

"Now, now, Rose; tha's enough. I already fed ya back in th' room. No need t' get t' m' stuff too," the woman muttered as she glanced about the room. With any luck, the Sasarky brothers were still floating out on the ocean on Luis' Blastoise... But still, this hope, mixed with how close to her destination she was, made for an interesting set of anxious reactions.

Chapter 1 cont. - Arrived?

The ship ride to Four Island took roughly 30 minutes, since after all, the boat was moving at top speed. Barely able to stand up without losing her balance a few times, Gale found the ride to be a bit of a terror. When the ship finally stopped, Gale let out a small sigh.

"We have now arrived at One Island," the person in the overheard called. "We will then go to Two Island, and so on..." Muttering angrily, Gale sat on her bed and growled. Come on, come on, she thought. How long will it take???

Three more half hour trips, with the ten minute breaks in between, and she was there. About time, Gale thought, exiting the boat quietly. Now to find Truan... She headed outside the ship, and was immediately surrounded by many people.

"Whoa, you're like, so hot!" a young fugly man exclaimed. "Come with us, bab~y!" Gale shook her head.

"Mess with me and you're doomed," she explained sternly, her hands on her hips. The men backed off, then laughed.

"She's too girly to do such!" one shouted.

"Yeah! She probably doesn't know anything about 'love'!" another said.

"C'mon, darling, come with us. You'll have a fine time," a third one added. At once, the PokeBalls came flying out. The four Pokemon stared the older men down, and they cowered again.

"She's got Pokemon! Head for the hills!!!" they shouted simultaneously, running away at top speed. Ruby turned and looked at Gale, as if making sure she was all right. Gale gave a nod of approval, and Ruby seemed to sigh a bit. Lace looked like she was going to destroy those men if they tried to get at Gale again, and so forth. Recalling her loyal Pokemon, Gale decided it'd be best to head towards the Pokemon Center for the time being.

(OK, you meant two posts MINIMUM, and not MAXIMUM, right? O.o)

Ch.1 - #4

Alexander came into the cafeteria without Jackie, for a change, and was pleased to see that he had come on time. The room was only beginning to fill up, and the lineup was short. He picked up a plate of scrambled eggs, hash browns, and sausages and poured himself a large mug of coffee, then took his tray and looked about the room. He was looking for an empty chair, and, more importantly, for the young woman he'd seen earlier that morning.

And there she was, sitting at one end of a long, white-covered table, a small vulpix at her side. Luckily, she had her back to the buffet, which would let him come up without being seen. Which he did. He came up to her left and said cooly,

"Hi. Is this seat taken?"

He was wearing a snappy black and grey striped shirt and a pleasant smile, though his eyes were quizzical.

November 20th, 2008, 3:50 PM
~Chapter 1: Four Island~

Lauren didn't jump like the Narrator half-expected her to at the sound of Alexander's voice; instead, the woman slowly unleashed a thin-sounding sigh and shrugged to his question; she didn't even do so much as look at him.

"Does it look occupied t' ya?" she inquired just as cooly. Indeed, the chair to her right didn't have any signs of being used at all. "Family styled seatin'; ya can sit wherever ya want. This is 'bout those two twits, I presume?" Lauren asked further, now showing no efforts to hide the sound of slight agrivation in her voice. Rosiary blinked during the pair's exchange and looked up at the other human; instintively, she shrunk back; he looked extremely giant right now to her tiny, newly born mind.

November 20th, 2008, 3:59 PM
Chapter 1 cont. still - *At Last!*

Well, it came down to this. The Pokemon Center had to be the most boring place in the whole island. But, there was a computer, which would come in use for her. She walked over to it, and turned it on. Typing in the number of her brother's laptop, she waited for him to pick up. At long last, the screen blipped and Colin's face appeared.

"Yo, 'Terra', how are ya doing?" he asked in a matter-of-fact tone. Gale scowled at Colin's familiar remark, and sighed.

"Well, just to let you know, I'm in Four Island, so don't look for me in Ecruteak, 'k?" Colin seemed to be a tad surprised.

"Whoa, whoa, whoa, how'd you get THERE? Unless you had Zuri swim there, but it would take you at least two days from Kanto! And three days from Johto!"

"Well, thanks to you, I had a ticket to get to Saffron, then I met Jasmine in Vermilion, who gave me a ticket to get to Four Island. How lucky is that?" Gale smirked at the thought of her brother not realizing her intelligence.

"Oh. OK, then... By the way, I have Kaen and Blaze, if you still want them..." Colin lifted up two Premier Balls. "They're both level 5, and they both have an Egg Move each. You're a very lucky person, as I took them from a breeder who cared about nothing but perfecting his Pokemon. Want me to send them to you?" Gale nodded, as she had anticipated this moment for so long. Colin placed the balls onto what seemed to be an odd-looking telephone. The PokeBalls suddenly disappeared, and reappeared on Gale's end. Gale thanked Colin, then turned off the monitor before he could say anything else. Glancing at her new Pokemon, Gale gave a sigh of joy.

(OK, if you find it unfair for her to get these guys early, then let me know and I'll have Gale transfer them back to Colin in the next post. And if it's OK, can Kaen (the Vulpix) be shiny?)

November 24th, 2008, 5:23 PM
"C'mon, Cloud, you can do it! Just flap your wings, and let your instinct take things from there!" Ann shouted, encouragingly, to the small Swablu beside her. At only about half a typical Swablu's size, he was still quite young. Lifting his cotton-like wings, Cloud jumped into the air while flapping as hard as he could. He glided wobbly through the air for a few seconds before pitching forward and hitting the ground beak first.

"Cloud, you alright?" Ann asked as she picked the small, blue Pokemon up, brushing the dirt out of his feathers. Although tears formed in the corners of the Swablu's eyes, Cloud nodded. Sighing in relief, Ann assured him, "Don't worry, pal. You'll be flying as well as Bell in no time or maybe even better. You'll see. Just need to keep practicing." Bell, a Pidgeot who was sitting several feet away, smiled and nodded in agreement. Comforted, Cloud leaped onto Ann's right shoulder just as a voice called from the direction of the family home.

"Ann!... I've got that letter we told about. Where are you!?" When she saw her father in the distance, Ann waved her hands to catch his attention.

"We're over here, Dad!" As soon he reached her, she added,"I was just helping Cloud practice his flying. He's getting better all the time, but I think he still has a ways to go. He'll get there though." Before her father answered, Ann noticed that the rest of her Pokemon- Blitz, a Blaziken; Comet, a Luxray; and Lily, a Phanpy- had all come with him.

"That sounds good. Anyway, here's the letter. What do you think you're going to do?" Pulling the letter out of the envelope, Ann read it aloud even though her mom had read it to her over the phone:

Congratulations! You have been chosen. You must meet me, Professor Truan at 9:00 on November 18th on Four Island (date due to change). Once you come and see me I will explain why you have been chosen, and what you must do. This is very important. I will see you soon.

~Prof. Truan

After thinking for several seconds, she grinned broadly and said, "You know as well as I do that there's no way I'll be able to sleep without finding out what this is all about. Don't worry.... I'll be careful. Besides, I'll have my Pokemon with me." All of the Pokemon, including little Cloud, nodded in agreement. "Hmm... Four Island.... That's in Kanto. Well, at least that's where I was heading in the first place. If this Professor Truan turns out to be some kind of nut, I can still enter the Pokemon League there. Do you know how I can get there, Dad?"

"Well, If memory serves me, I believe you can take a ship from Slateport to Vermilion, and from Vermilion, you can take a ferry to Four Island. You need me to help you pack?" Shaking her head, Ann wrapped her dad in a tight hug.

"Nah... I've still got just about everything I need already packed. Bye, Dad. I'll call you soon and let you know how things are going." She quickly returned Blitz, Comet, and Lily to their pokeballs, but Cloud stubbornly jumped off her shoulder and knocked the pokeball away with his wing, pleading with his eyes to let him stay out. Trying to hide her smile, Ann faked a sigh and let the little Swablu squirm on her arm for a few seconds before winking and replying, "Oh, alright. I'll let you ride shotgun. You need all the help you can get for your flying anyway, right?" After Cloud leaped joyfully back onto her shoulder, Ann climbed onto Bell's feathery back and waved to her father as he grew smaller and smaller below her. "Look out, Four Islands! Here we come!" she shouted into the clear air as her Pidgeot shot forward at a breath-taking speed, gripping a small, leather strap that Bell wore across her back so she wouldn't lose her balance.

Some time later, Ann pulled out her pokenav to check their progress. Satisfied, she said, "Look like we're going to be in Slateport in no time, guys. Whoa, watch out!" Just ahead of them, a net was stretched between two trees in a shadowy part of the forest, which made it nearly impossible to see. Bell tried to swerve out of the way, but at the speed she was going, they hit the net a millisecond later. Fortunately, her wings weren't completely tangled, but they were still falling toward the ground at a frightening speed and it was impossible to change direction. Below them, Ann could see a large jagged rock that they were falling toward as if they were magnetically drawn to it. We're dead! Even as she thought this and fearfully closed her eyes, she felt a sudden strong updraft, and when she opened her eyes again, she saw that they were gliding safely over the danger. "Man! Who's gonna believe that we were saved by a crazy wind!?"

Before she could give it anymore thought, strong vines shot out and wrapped around her and her two Pokemon, setting them safely on the ground. "Wow, thanks a lot..." Ann began but quickly cut off her sentence when she saw that her savior was a young, blonde girl, wearing a black uniform with a large, red 'R' printed across the front. "Uhh.... You're from Team Racket, right?"

"That's Team Rocket, you twit!" the girl growled irritatedly, her face reddening slightly. Unfazed, Ann just grinned a little good-naturedly before replying, "Oh, sorry. I don't see many of your kind around here in Hoenn. Since I'm on my way to Kanto, I guess I'll have to remember that. Team Rocket, huh? Is it true that you steal people's Pokemon? Anyway, thanks for the save. That fall could've ended badly."

The Team Rocket grunt's face reddened even more in frustration and her pokemon, a Victreebell, readied itself to attack. "Boy, are you dumb! I set up that net so I could steal your Pokemon! Now hand them over, starting with that Swablu." Ann's face darkened a little when the grunt demanded that she hand over Cloud, but she shrugged and responded, "Oh, I know that. I guess I just thought it was funny that your face gets so red everytime you get upset. Anyway, there's no way I'm letting you get your slimy hands on Cloud, so it's time to get serious! Blitz, cut the net with Slash and take out that Victreebell with your Flamethrower!"

As she threw her Blaziken's pokeball out of the net, she heard the girl barking out her own orders. "Don't let them get loose, Victreebell. Stop that Pokemon with your Vine Whip." Using his Agility, Blitz easily dodged the grass Pokemon's vines and cut the net to shreds. He then sent a fiery blast toward his attacker, which the Victreebell fractically tried to dodge, but it slammed into it, sending it crashing into its trainer. "Great job as always, Blitz," Ann said proudly as she returned him to his pokeball. "Anybody hurt?" she asked Bell and Cloud, concerned. Cloud jumped happily into her arms showing that he was fine, but Bell held her left wing at a weird angle. Feeling around the wing carefully, Ann was relieved to discover that it wasn't broken but got some bandages from her backpack and wrapped it up, knowing that she probably needed to get her to a Pokecenter as soon as possible. She then put the Pidgeot in her Pokeball.

"Looks like it's just you and me, Cloud. It's too far for us to walk and make it on time, so look as cute and fluffy as possible 'cause we're going to have to hitchhike," Ann joked as she swung her backpack over her shoulder. Cloud returned to his place on her right shoulder and, not realizing that she was joking, began to preen his feathers and puff them out as best as he could. Chuckling softly, Ann took off at a jog, heading toward where her pokenav said a road was supposed to be. Better get out of her before that crazy Rocket girl wakes up and comes after us again. We can't afford many more delays. After running on the road for about an hour, blue car came down the road, stopping beside the weary trainer.

The passenger window rolled down, revealing a middle-aged man driving with a woman, apparently his wife, sitting next to him. "Slateport.... how long?" Ann managed to gasp. Boy, I've gotten so spoiled riding on Bell wherever I go. The woman smiled kindly at Ann and looked questioningly at her husband, smiling even more broadly when he nodded. "Hop in. We'll get you there in about half an hour. We were headed there anyway. I'm Christi Golins, and this is my husband Josh. What a cute Swablu!"

"Score, Cloud! I told ya we'd find a ride," Ann whispered to her Pokemon before answering the couple. "Thanks a lot! I'm Ann, and this is Cloud. We're trying to catch the boat to Kanto." While riding with the Golins, she discovered that there'd be a boat leaving soon after she arrived. She would have just enough time to take Bell to the Pokecenter before she'd have to board. Sure enough, half an hour later, the car pulled into the port city of Slateport, and Ann was dropped off at the Pokecenter. After briefly examining Bell's wing, Nurse Joy announced that it was only a slight sprain that would heal completely in three or four days, which alleviated much of Ann's concern.

A few moments later, Ann was running toward the docks. "We're going to have to hurry, Cloud! If we miss this ship, we might have to wait 'til tomorrow for another one and that'll be too late. Cloud pointed a wing toward a ship just pulling into the harbor. "Nah.... That's not it, pal. That one goes between Lilycove and Slateport. Ahh, I think that's it." Heading toward a ship, she bought a ticket, and a few minutes later, was hanging out on the deck, waiting for it to depart. "You ready for a new adventure, Cloud?"

Aragorn woke up and raced up a hill to feel the fresh air... only to trip and remember that he was in a huge cave. "owww......" Aragorn complained " jeez, how do I manage to trip on smooth ground? ugh..., anyways, I should get going." he then looked at the letter he received from the professor. "soon we should be going to thr..." he murmured and then tripped again- while standing still! when he got up he glanced at the letter again and started to panic. "aaaaaaaaa!!!! Thats today! I have to get to three Islands today, and I'm stuck in the middle of a huge cave!!! so many things are going wrong!" as if to punctuate his point, the cave started to rumble. "oh for...!" Aragorn exclaimed "aaahhh!!! Landslide! Cave-in! Sol, we've gotta get out of here!" he yelled and called out Sol, preparing to get on the Charizard and fly.
"Char! Char!"
"Let's get out of here!"
